BLACK LEOPARD, RED WOLF by Marlon James

Black Leopard, Red Wolf is chillingly original. In Marlon James’s epic, the extremes of fiction become obsolete—creatures and landscapes stretch the confines of imagination, villains drip with unparalleled horror and revulsion, fantasy tropes get squashed and replaced. The novel follows Tracker, a vengeful and violent hunter with a legendary nose, as he searches for a boy who’s been missing for years. James envelops you in Tracker’s quest, but the real reason you’re reading is clear: to be wholly submerged in a mythological, jarring, ancient Africa, a place where demons whisper the fears of your heart and forests steal your time, a world so unbelievable and terrible you’ll forget to come up to breathe. —Kate Brouns, Harvard Book Store
