Synopsis

Selected for Granta's Best of Young American Novelists 2017Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Best First BookShortlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader's wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow. Taking us from the Gold Coast of Africa to the cotton-picking plantations of Mississippi; from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and seven generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel - the intimate, gripping story of a brilliantly vivid cast of characters and through their lives the very story of America itself.Epic in its canvas and intimate in its portraits, Homegoing is a searing and profound debut from a masterly new writer.

A heart-breaking story that had me immersed from the first page. I was fascinated and completely stunned by the structure of this book. Across 14 chapters, Yaa skilfully tells a story spanning over 8 generations of a Ghanaian family, revealing slavery’s legacy from the 1800s up to today. Shocking, eye-opening and humble, this has become one of my favourite books. If you read only one book in 2017, make it this one! A masterpiece.
