“Little Fires Everywhere,” by Celeste Ng

Before you click on the new Hulu TV show, stop! Read the book first. You have a chance during #StayHomeMN to tear through this page-turner and then binge the show.

“Little Fires Everywhere” is a well-written family drama and a great study of a privileged community. Shaker Heights, Ohio, could easily be plunked down on the outskirts of Minneapolis-St. Paul. An interesting examination of race issues and a throwback to the late 1990s.
