tale, made vivid by Esi Edugyans gifts for language and character, and by the strength of her story The reader feels honoured to have kept Wash company on his journeying and moved to see him embark upon his true beginning.Erica Wagner, The New Statesman UK Washington Black is deserving of its place on the Man Booker Prize longlist Its a box of treats that manages to work history, science, and politics together under the guise of a high stakes, steampunk adventure For all its cinematic capersthere are snowstorms, identical twins, and searches for lost fathers Washington Black is a profoundly humane story about false idols, the fickleness of fortune, and whether a slave, once freed, can ever truly be free.Johanna Thomas Corr, The Times London Washington Black is as harrowing a portrayal of slavery as Colson Whiteheads The Underground Railroad, but it also becomes a globe trotting, page turning adventure story A historical epic with much to say about the present day world The Guardian Washington Blackis nothing short of a masterpiece Esi Edugyan has a rare talent for turning over little known stones of history and giving her reader a new lens on the world, a new way of understanding subject matter we arrogantly think we know everything about This book is an epic adventure and a heartfelt tale about love and morality and their many contradictions I loved it.Attica Locke, author of Bluebird, Bluebird At the core of this novel, with its searing, supple prose and superb characters, is a visceral depiction of the abomination of slavery Yet, as importantly, it explores an unlikely friendship, the limits to understanding anothers suffering, the violence lurking in humans, and the glories of adventure in a world full of wonders.Elizabeth Buchan, The Daily Mail Wonderful Eloquent Brilliant Wash and Titch are so alive as to be unforgettable This important novel from the author of the superb Half Blood Blues belongs in every library Booklist starred Washington Black paints an unflinching portrait of American slavery before tracing one boy s arduous, globe trootting journey to freedom Entertainment WeeklyEdugyans magnificent third novel again demonstrates her range and gifts Framing the story with rich evocations of the eras science and the world it studies, Edugyan mines the tensions between individual goodwill and systemic oppression, belonging and exclusion, wonder and terror, and human and natural order Crafted in supple, nuanced prose, Edugyans novel is both searing and beautiful Publishers Weekly starred, boxed Natasha Walter, The Guardian High adventure fraught with cliffhanger twists marks this runaway slave narrative, which leaps, sails, and soars from Caribbean cane fields to the fringes of the frozen Arctic and across a whole ocean One of the most unconventional escapes from slavery ever chronicled Edugyan displays as much ingenuity and resourcefulness as her main characters in spinning this yarn, and the readers expectations are upended almost as often as her heros A thoughtful, boldly imagined ripsnorter that broadens inventive possibilities for the antebellum novel Kirkus Reviews starred Washington Black is an intimate portrait of slavery at its most genocidal and of the limitations of kindness in an unjust system The books hero is a gifted scientist and artist fighting to live a fully human life in a world that insists on seeing him either as livestock or as an object of pity Along the way, there are balloon rides through storms at sea, vignettes of frontier life in nineteenth century Canada, scenes of polar exploration, and the establishment of the worlds first aquarium Washington Black is a brilliantly absorbing picaresque a book that combines the unflinching depiction of violence with a lyrical, hallucinatory beauty.Sandra Newman, author of The Country of Ice Cream StarLONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018 From the author of the award winning international best seller Half Blood Blues comes a dazzling new novel, about a boy who rises from the ashes of slavery to become a free man of the world.George Washington Black, or Wash, an eleven year old field slave on a Barbados sugar plantation, is terrified to be chosen by his master s brother as his manservant To his surprise, the eccentric Christopher Wilde turns out to be a naturalist, explorer, inventor, and abolitionist Soon Wash is initiated into a world where a flying machine can carry a man across the sky, where even a boy born in chains may embrace a life of dignity and meaning and where two people, separated by an impossible divide, can begin to see each other as human But when a man is killed and a bounty is placed on Wash s head, Christopher and Wash must abandon everything What follows is their flight along the eastern coast of America, and, finally, to a remote outpost in the Arctic What brings Christopher and Wash together will tear them apart, propelling Wash even further across the globe in search of his true self From the blistering cane fields of the Caribbean to the frozen Far North, from the earliest aquariums of London to the eerie deserts of Morocco, Washington Black tells a story of self invention and betrayal, of love and redemption, of a world destroyed and made whole again, and asks the question, What is true freedom Black clad antifa members attack The Washington Post Black bloc
