I was invited to write a review of my dear friend Julian Augon’s book ‘The Properties of Perpetual Light’. The task was a little daunting given his book has received the highest praise from the likes of Alice Walker, Junot Diaz, Naomi Klein, Kathy-Jetnil-Kijiner, Katarina Teaiwa, Jonathan Osorio, and other notables.
So, I offer a review, one based on our personal friendship and consider what this book might represent to readers, especially young people in the South . . .
