Overview

The critically-acclaimed novel Washington Black is hailed as one of the best books of the year by major publications. Esi Edugyan’s novel is about George Washington Black, or "Wash." He is an eleven-year-old field slave who served on a sugar plantation in Barbados. He is terrified when he was chosen by his master's brother to be his manservant. To his big surprise, the man was the eccentric Christopher Wilde. He turned out to be an explorer, a naturalist, an inventor, and an abolitionist. Soon, young Wash was initiated into the world of many possibilities. A flying machine can carry a full-grown man across the sky. And even a slave boy who was born in chains can embrace a life of meaning and dignity. This is a world where two people can begin to see each other as humans even when they are separated by an impossible divide. However, when a man was killed, the bounty was placed on Wash's head. He and Christopher must abandon everything. What brought the two men together will also tear them apart from each other. Esi Edugyan’s novel Washington Black is a story about love, friendship, redemption, self-invention, betrayal, and freedom.
