Marlon James' highly acclaimed debut was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Prize and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Here he presents a dramatic slave narrative set on a 19th-century Jamaican sugar plantation. Ever since she was a small child, Lilith has been closely watched by a contingent of fellow slaves-calling themselves the Night Women- who have long planned a revolt. Though she does not yet know it, Lilith is the key to their carefully laid plans.
