Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book)! That means it's a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books. 

"In Homegoing, Yaa Gyasi writes an inspiring and powerful narrative about the lineage of two half-sisters, Effie and Esi, beginning in 18th-century Ghana and ending in present-day America. Effie is sent away from her family to take the role of wife to a British slave trader, while Esi resides in the dungeon below Effie's feet as a prisoner of the Fante nation's slave trade. In each alternating chapter that follows, Gyasi introduces us to new generations of their family; each character revealing the times and collectively showing the creation and evils of racism. This is a beautifully written story about how the past undoubtedly shapes the future, through characters that will just tug at your heart with each suffering and victory they experience. It's hard to believe this is Yaa Gyasi's debut novel - I was left wanting to read more form such  an insightful voice." - Stephanie Coleman, Associate Frontlist Buyer
