Foyles Notes

Introducing Black Leopard, Red Wolf—the first novel from Marlon James since his 2015 Man Booker-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings. Available in our signed exclusive edition: strictly limited to a total of just 1500 copies, each of these first editions comes signed by the author and numbered. With gold sprayed edges, bespoke endpapers, cherry red board and a purple ribbon marker, this is a truly unique way to own a truly unique book.

Synopsis

Enter a world of witches and demons, of spirits and shapeshifters, of slave traders and white scientists. A world of violence, and action, of power and intrigue, where spirits cannot be told from men and truth cannot be told from storytelling.


A truly epic novel in every sense, James draws deep from African traditions and mythologies to concoct a bold, fully-realised new fantasy world dense with unforgettable characters. Characters like Leopard, who can change from man to beast; like Smoke Girl, an unwanted child with the ability to disappear; like the Omoluzu, bloodthirsty killers who can appear wherever there is a roof; and Tracker, our protagonist, a young man with one wolf eye and an uncanny ability to follow his nose.


Engaged to find a mysterious boy who has disappeared three years before, Tracker breaks his own rule of always working alone when he finds himself part of a rag-tag group that comes together to search for the boy. Alongside fantastical characters with secrets of their own, including the shapeshifting Leopard, a witch and the giant-sized Ogo, the unlikely band follow the lost boy's scent from one ancient city to another; into dense forests and across deep rivers, set upon by creatures intent on destroying them. As he struggles to survive, Tracker starts to wonder: Who, really, is this mysterious boy? Why do so many people want to stop him being found? And, most important of all, who is telling the truth and who is lying?


A literary high fantasy for the blockbuster movie age, Black Leopard unfolds as the telling of a tale—an oral, digressive, innuendo-laden one—where reality is fluid and everyone has an agenda. It's an unprecedented book, an important book, and one that’ll leave you different from how it found you.
