In conversation with Roxane Gay
Co-presented with Eso Won Books
Dubbed an “African Games of Thrones,” Marlon James’s transfixing new epic, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, defies all categorizations. From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History of Seven Killings, this first novel of a forthcoming trilogy follows a mercenary’s journey to find a missing child in a magical ancient African continent. Blending myth, history, metaphysics, and psychology, James transforms the tradition of fantasy genre with a multicultural perspective to profoundly question the very nature of truth and power. Discussing the infinite possibilities of provocative storytelling, James will be joined in conversation by Roxane Gay, the trailblazing bestselling author of Bad Feminist, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, and World of Wakanda for Marvel.
