This month, New York Times bestselling author Terry McMillan returns with her latest novel, Who Asked You? It’s a stirring look at a slew of issues plaguing the African-American community (including the mass incarceration of Black males and interracial marriage), centered around a working-class grandmother forced to raise her two grandsons who were abandoned by their drug-addicted mother.

In typical fashion, McMillan tells the story through the lens of characters that are rich and real and flawed – an especially remarkable feat considering she writes from the perspective of 15 different people, including an eight-year-old boy. It’s a testament to her mastery of the craft, and even with a portfolio that spans the last 26 years and includes the pop-culture phenomenon Waiting to ExhaleWho Asked You? is one of McMillan’s best.

“I got a lot from telling this story, and I’m very proud of it,” she told MadameNoire in a recent interview. “So if folks don’t like it, too bad.”
