“It’s a privilege to announce She Would Be King by Wayétu Moore as the new selection for Book Club Central. This novel dazzles with beauty and transcendent, transformative humanity. Through the stories of Gbessa, June Dey, and Norman Aragon, Wayétu Moore illuminates what it means to be of and from places that are both faraway and inescapably familiar. I treasured every moment I spent in the pages of this book, and I’m thrilled to be able share it with all of you.”
—Sarah Jessica Parker
