Homegoing

by Yaa Gyasi
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2017)

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Best First Book
 
Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader's wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow.
 
Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi; from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel - the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and through their lives the very story of America itself.
 
Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portraits, Homegoing is a searing and profound debut from a masterly new writer.
