In one of the most audacious literary debuts in recent memory, a first-time novelist—Ghana born, Alabama raised—constructs a wide-ranging narrative tackling nothing less than the legacy of the African slave trade through seven generations of one family, from 18th-century Gold Coast Africa to present-day California. An epic work by a rising star.

HOMEGOING, by YAA GYASI, is an astonishing epic set in Ghana and the United States, about the legacy of slavery through generations. Born in Ghana, Gyasi grew up a Third Culture Kid in the USA and was educated at Stanford. This is her debut novel.
