Staff Reviews

What a wild ride! Young slave Washington Black escapes the brutality of a sugar plantation in Barbados via hot air balloon and that is only the beginning! Wash soars above his circumstances and shapes his own life through imagination, intelligence, art, sensibility, and grit. A remarkable tale!

October 2018 Indie Next List

“Epic in scope, ranging from a brutal slave plantation in Barbados to scenes in the Arctic, antebellum America, and London, plus a thoughtful denouement in the Moroccan desert, Edugyan’s novel explores the complex relationship between slave and master, the hubris of good intentions, and the tense life of a runaway in constant flight with a Javert on his tail. What results is a compulsive page-turner blessed with effortless prose. Highly recommended.”
