Product description

Review

One of the best books I have ever read in my entire life . . . I was enthralled, I was devastated. (Oprah Winfrey)

a remarkable story about inequality, slavery, memory, freedom and dignity. I found it important and universally relevant (Elif Shafak Guardian)

a crowd-pleasing exercise in breakneck and often occult storytelling that tonally resembles the work of Stephen King as much as it does the work of Toni Morrison, Colson Whitehead and the touchstone African-American science-fiction writer Octavia Butler. (New York Times)

a work of both staggering imagination and rich historical significance . . . timeless and instantly canon-worthy. (Rolling Stone)

A tale of slavery and mysterious power in this debut novel from one of America's most exciting young writers. (The Times)

An arresting story of fantastical power in the brutal world of human bondage . . . A transcendent, arresting work from a crucial political and literary artist (Diana Evans)

Eagerly anticipated . . . The Water Dancer merges historical and fantasy fiction in a slavery story that Oprah Winfrey says is one of the best books she has read in her life. (Observer)

In prose that sings and imagination that soars, Coates further cements himself as one of this generation's most important writers, tackling one of America's oldest and darkest periods with grace and inventiveness. This is bold, dazzling, and not to be missed (Publisher's Weekly)

This potent book about America's most disgraceful sin establishes [Ta-Nehisi Coates] as a first-rate novelist. (San Francisco Chronicle)

Ta-Nehisi Coates has emerged as an important public intellectual and perhaps America's most incisive thinker about race. (New York Times)

Book Description

Stunning and profound, the highly anticipated debut novel from the award-winning, bestselling author of We Were Eight Years in Power - a story of bondage, freedom, and love.
