Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour
Happy Pub Day for Black Buck! This is one of my most anticipated January releases. Written by Mateo Askaripour, Black Buck is a memoir about a young Black man making his way in the world. From a shift supervisor at Starbucks to the only Black member of an elite sales team at a tech startup, he is given an opportunity to make use of his potential. Nicknamed Buck from his barista beginnings, he is out to prove himself.
Askaripour is an epic storyteller, and is so damn likable. You will root for him from page one. I’m still making my way through this one, and I’m loving it.
Thank you to the author and @houghtonmifflinharcourt for my advance digital copy through @netgalley, and @librofm for the audiobook.
