`[A] cutting take on race and class...part dark comedy, part surreal morality tale. Disturbing and delicious.` -People

`You`ll gulp Senna`s novel in a single sitting-but then mull over it for days.` -Entertainment Weekly

`Everyone should read it.` -Vogue

From the bestselling author of Caucasia, a subversive and engrossing novel of race, class and manners in contemporary America.

As the twentieth century draws to a close, Maria is at the start of a life she never thought possible. She and Khalil, her college sweetheart, are planning their wedding. They are the perfect couple, `King and Queen of the Racially Nebulous Prom.` Their skin is the same shade of beige. They live together in a black bohemian enclave in Brooklyn, where Khalil is riding the wave of the first dot-com boom and Maria is plugging away at her dissertation, on the Jonestown massacre. They`ve even landed a starring role in a documentary about `new people` like them, who are blurring the old boundaries as a brave new era dawns. Everything Maria knows she should want lies before her--yet she can`t stop daydreaming about another man, a poet she barely knows. As fantasy escalates to fixation, it dredges up secrets from the past and threatens to unravel not only Maria`s perfect new life but her very persona.

Heartbreaking and darkly comic, New People is a bold and unfettered page-turner that challenges our every assumption about how we define one another, and ourselves.
