"Washington Black" by Esi Edugyan
Join the Harvard Club of San Francisco Reading Group via Zoom to Discuss
A wonder of an adventure story, powered by the helium of fantasy, but also by the tender sensibility of its aspiring young hero, Wash Black. Certainly, much of the pleasure of reading Washington Black derives from Edugyan's ingenious storytelling gifts, but her novel is more than just a buoyant bauble. The brutalities and injustices of the past supply Edugyan, the Canadian child of Ghanaian immigrants, with situations that she uses to crack open the human psyche and expose the tender, tangled material within.
