THE NEW YORK TIMES #1 BESTSELLER OPRAH BOOK CLUB PICK'One of the best books I have ever read in my entire life.

I haven't felt this way since I first read Beloved . . .' Oprah Winfrey Lose yourself in the stunning debut novel everyone is talking about - the unmissable historical story of injustice and redemption that resonates powerfully todayHiram Walker is a man with a secret, and a war to win.

A war for the right to life, to family, to freedom. Born into bondage on a Virginia plantation, he is also born gifted with a mysterious power that he won't discover until he is almost a man, when he risks everything for a chance to escape.

One fateful decision will carry him away from his makeshift plantation family and into the heart of the underground war on slavery... 'A transcendent work from a crucial political and literary artist' Diana Evans 'I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died.

Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates' Toni Morrison
