Product Details


Hiram tells a tale with many harrowing subplots—and moments of great beauty. . . . Coates is an exceptional prose stylist. . . . [His] depiction of the cruelty inflicted on slaves is unflinching. And with great care and insight, he shows us how Hiram and those he loves find sustenance in shared hopes and memories. . . . Coates is among the finer nonfiction writers of his generation. This potent book about America’s most disgraceful sin establishes him as a first-rate novelist.”The San Francisco Chronicle
“[The Water Dancer] feels like a natural bridge . . . and the product of a lot of carefully considered passion, too. Nearly every paragraph is laced through with dense, gorgeously evocative descriptions of a vanished world and steeped in its own vivid vocabulary.”Entertainment Weekly
