Miya Coleman’s premier collection, Cottonmouth paints the picture of what makes up a home, and also, more importantly, what doesn’t.
Readers join Coleman as she journeys through her own conceptions of race, religion, beauty, and addiction to uncover what it means to be one person with many different identities.
At the center of the book lies love and grace, as Miya examines cycles of grief and familial trauma, and confronts the aftermath. All the while a quiet, insistent voice asks, is love enough?
