Black Leopard, Red Wolf, by Marlon James

36.50

This ferocious new work by Man Booker Prize-winner and Flying Books current guest chooser Marlon James in some ways marks a departure from his previous book A Brief History of Seven Killings, its power and intensity calibrated differently, but James’ command of language remains unmistakable. Black Leopard, Red Wolf has been described as a black Game of Thrones, and the comparison holds up at the level of world-building and suspense. A boy has gone missing, and Tracker, who usually works alone, joins a rag-tag group in the search. By turns violent, moving, raunchy, and funny, this is one breathless read.

Marlon has chosen four of his favourite books — The Master and Margarita, Dogeaters, Song of Solomon, and Dubliners — available here and at the Flying Books flagship store on Queen St W. We’re thrilled that he agreed to fly with us.
