Let’s Talk About Something Else by Suzanne Ushie

In anticipation of the forthcoming Power Issue, Saraba Magazine is pleased to release a fiction supplement by Suzanne Ushie. Let’s Talk About Something Else is the compelling story of Uzilibe, a young woman who walks away from a job everyone else thinks she should have held onto. In the process, she tests the limits of a friendship, discovers the power of narrative, and perhaps finds herself.
