Ladee Hubbard

In Ladee Hubbard’s imaginative and engrossing second novel, The Rib King, the reader is dropped into the circa 1914 daily whirl of Black servants in a fading, but well-to-do household. The escapades of these hardworking, innovative people create a suspenseful page turner as a network of interests compete to take advantage of them. This illuminating examination of a troubled period sheds light on those who thrive despite prevalent racism.
