Product description

Review

"A haunting novel whose brevity and directness belie the depths of tragedy it plumbs." (Aida Edemariam The Guardian (London))

"D'Aguiar marks his accomplished arrival as a novelist with this compelling and compassionate work" (Sean Coughlan The Times)

"A short book that speaks volumes about slavery... Keeping his page taut with compression and compassion, D'Aguiar makes The Longest Memory hard to forget" (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)

"This deceptively simple book resonates long after it is finished" (Paula Burnett New Statesman and Society)

Book Description

‘A gripping lyric exploration of the life of Whitechapel, a slave on an 18th century Virginia plantation… a brilliant – and beautiful – achievement.’ Independent on Sunday
