Marlon James

Although Marlon James detonated, meteor-like, into British cultural awareness with his Man Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings, James’s baroque brilliance had been founded a decade earlier with his Jamaica-set debut, John Crow’s Devil. This electric battle of faith was followed in 2009 with The Book of Night Women, James’s visceral tale of black slavery and the uneasy compromises of power.

Several years later, Marlon James returned on blistering form, A Brief History of Seven Killings becoming an instant, postcolonial classic, earning James his 2015 Man Booker win. In 2019, Marlon James defied expectation with his ambitious new project Black Leopard, White Wolf, a mythic vision of ancient Africa rendered as high fantasy.

Suffused with African folklore and exquisite, lyrical prose, the incandescent sequel to Marlon James' Black Leopard, Red Wolf revolves around the formidable witch Sogolon and the riddle of a lost child.
