Staff Reviews


A slave on a plantation in Barbados in the 1800s, George Washington Black receives a gift: he is chosen to help his master’s brother, who is building a flying machine. This is a story of a young boy on an amazing adventure, navigating air, water, and the evils of slavery.

— Mamie

October 2018 Indie Next List


“Epic in scope, ranging from a brutal slave plantation in Barbados to scenes in the Arctic, antebellum America, and London, plus a thoughtful denouement in the Moroccan desert, Edugyan’s novel explores the complex relationship between slave and master, the hubris of good intentions, and the tense life of a runaway in constant flight with a Javert on his tail. What results is a compulsive page-turner blessed with effortless prose. Highly recommended.”
— Matthew Lage, Iowa Book, Iowa City, IA
