#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING, AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: We Were Eight Years in Power, a collection of mostly previously published essays, was an instant bestseller and named to many “best of the year” lists. Between the World and Me, his last original work, won the National Book Award for Nonfiction and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Altogether, his three books have sold nearly 2 million copies in all formats.
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED FICTION DEBUT:Ta-Nehisi’s signature lyrical power has helped fuel the anticipation of his fiction debut. He has created buzz by reading fragments of the work at standing-room-only events from the AWP conference to Shakespeare and Company in Paris to Pioneer Works in Brooklyn.
LOYAL FOLLOWING: Coates’s core readership has followed him from The Atlantic to his bestselling books to his first foray into imaginative literature, a critically acclaimed, blockbuster run of Marvel’s The Black Panther, which sold over 300k copies and helped shaped the record-breaking movie, for which he was a consultant.
COMBINES FAMILY SAGA, LOVE STORY, HISTORICAL EPIC, AND DAZZLING SPECULATIVE FICTION: The book draws on deep research and the author’s own unfettered imagination to dramatically recast the story of slavery and freedom as an emotionally charged adventure with the highest stakes.
