Synopsis

This suspenseful historical fiction is the third novel of British-Guyanese poet, novelist and playwright Fred D’Aguiar. Inspired by true events, the book chronicles Mintah, a survivor of the noyade on the slave ship Zong, who spurs her fellow captives to rebellion. “D’Aguiar’s imagery is haunting, his characters’ thoughts complex and the mood is darkly compelling.”
