Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? is a posthumous 2016 collection of short stories by author Kathleen Collins. The title story was published by Granta in July 2016.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

The New York Times wrote "The best of these stories are a revelation. Ms. Collins had a gift for illuminating what the critic Albert Murray called the ‘black intramural class struggle,’ and two or three of her stories are so sensitive and sharp and political and sexy I suspect they will be widely anthologized."[1]

Claire Fallon of HuffPost praised the book saying "in poignant, searching scenes and contemplations, readers will be reintroduced to a great and under-appreciated creative talent in Kathleen Collins."[3]
