The Coming

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

"The Coming is powerful. And beautiful...This is a work to be proud of."--Charles Johnson, National Book Award winner for Middle Passage

Lyrical, poetic, and hypnotizing, The Coming tells the story of a people's capture and sojourn from their homeland across the Middle Passage--a traumatic trip that exposed the strength and resolve of the African spirit. Extreme conditions produce extraordinary insight, and only after being stripped of everything do they discover the unspeakable beauty they once took for granted. This powerful, haunting novel will shake readers to their very souls.

"Part homage to the proud and diverse cultures of Africa, part nightmare of the people stolen from those lands, The Coming seduces us with poetry, then breaks our hearts, but ultimately inspires us to celebrate the indomitable soul of humanity." —George Weinstein, author of Hardscrabble Road

Customer Reviews

Raw, Vivid, Spectacular

Dr. Daniel Black approaches the infrequently discussed Middle Passage in a way that makes you imagine how any people could endure so much pain yet still create, escape and overcome despite their horrific circumstances. This vivid novel is moving and touching. Must read.
