Esi Edugyan’s richly entertaining fiction expands the historical novel’s field of vision by reimagining classic literary genres through the eyes of black characters. Her novel Half-Blood Blues was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and received the Giller Prize, Canada’s most prestigious literary award. Edugyan’s most recent novel, Washington Black, was named one of the top ten books of the year by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly and TIME. It was also a finalist for the Man Booker Prize and received Edugyan’s landmark second Giller Prize.
