Mixed: An Anthology of Short Fiction on the Multiracial Experience

Edited by Chandra Prasad

A friend gave me Mixed a few weeks ago, and I have finally opened it. I prefer nonfiction for a multitude of reasons. Still, I am enjoying this work. What’s interesting is that while the short stories are works of fiction, they feel very real and true to me. All of the contributors come from blended families and give voice to the multiracial experience. I see this book as one I can turn to when Simone and Nadia are much older, when someone has done or said something hurtful.

Has anyone else read this work? How would you use it?
