Jane Kindred’s THE HOUSE OF ARKHANGEL’SK dazzles with its surreal blending of worlds. Lost angel Anazakia, last survivor of her murdered family, finds herself in the hands of demons with suspect motives, betrayed by her own kind, stranded in the world of Man—21st century St. Petersburg, Russia, to be exact. Weaving startling visuals with compelling characters, Kindred reveals parallels in the two worlds that are ‘neither haphazard chance nor calculated design.’ It’s a dizzying, vibrant read.
I want to celebrate these elms which have been spared by the plague, these survivors of a once flourishing tribe commemorated by all the Elm Streets in America.

I mean, did you ever notice? Nazis sure were inefficient, weren’t they? Boy, boy, boy! …You almost have no survivors that ever say they saw a gas chamber or saw the workings of a gas chamber…they’ll say these preposterous stories that anybody can check out to be a lie, an absolute lie.
Later, a large band of Christians mounted an attack on this native lord, butchering him along with vast numbers of his people and taking all the survivors into slavery, where they duly perished, so that today not a trace remains of what was previously a community with dominion over an area of some thirty leagues.
I felt hopeful for the future because Obama is here. But nothing has changed. It’s time for young kids to get serious again and really think about what their four fathers were like. As African-Americans, we are resilient, we are some bad mf-ers, and we are survivors. So get those i-pods out of their ears and become heroes again like the Freedom Riders.
An important documentary that sheds light on one of the most terrifying realities in the U.S. today—the commercial sexual exploitation of young girls.
