"Dawson Perkins has a cinematic eye and a true gift for dialogue that demands not just to be read, but devoured. The Team is smart, strong, and unforgettable, and Perkins is carving out a new literary space in which the voices of Black women resonate."-Jill Nelson
In The Team, Dawson Perkins tells the story of a successful young African American professional who has sealed away the trauma of being raped, at 19, by the future NBA star who led her college's basketball team. But when one of her rapist's teammates joins her company-and the two find themselves mutually attracted-she must come to grips with the demons of her past all over again. A smart, propulsive, indelible debut.
