Long Division

A Novel

Kiese Laymon

"Long Division" is a satirical novel that explores themes of celebrity, authorship, violence, religion, and coming of age in post-Katrina Mississippi. Follow the story of 14-year-old Citoyen "City" Coldson, who becomes an overnight YouTube sensation after a meltdown during a televised quiz contest. Sent to stay with his grandmother in a small coastal community, City receives a strange book without an author, called "Long Division," leading him and his friends on an adventure through time and across racial lines. With two interwoven stories, "Long Division" is a humorous, lacerating, and wise exploration of Black teenagers and their journey of self-discovery.

The books I read in 2022. Loved so many of these. The ones that really stayed with me (not necessarily my favorites) are in bold. Happy New Year, fellow book dorks.      fuente
Every fucking time I finish this book I get so mad because I love these kids and I want them to go on forever. Been reading some version or another of this book for 10 years, and I don’t know if I have ever fallen in love with a cast the way I love this one.      fuente
