#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER & #8226 OPRAH& #8217 S BOOK CLUB PICK & #8226 From the National Book Award& #8211 winning author of Between the World and Me, a boldly conjured debut novel about a magical gift, a devastating loss, and an underground war for freedom. & #8220 This potent book about America& #8217 s most disgraceful sin establishes [Ta-Nehisi Coates] as a first-rate novelist.& #8221 & #8212 San Francisco Chronicle IN DEVELOPMENT AS A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE & #8226 Adapted by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Kamilah Forbes, directed by Nia DaCosta, and produced by MGM, Plan B, and Oprah Winfrey& #8217 s Harpo Films NOMINATED FOR THE NAACP IMAGE AWARD & #8226 NAMED ONE OF PASTE& #8217 S BEST NOVELS OF THE DECADE & #8226 NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Time & #8226 NPR & #8226 The Washington Post & #8226 Chicago Tribune & #8226 Vanity Fair & #8226 Esquire & #8226 Good Housekeeping & #8226 Paste & #8226 Town & Country & #8226 The New York Public Library & #8226 Kirkus Reviews & #8226 Library Journal Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her& #8212 but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he& #8217 s ever known. So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia& #8217 s proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the Deep South to dangerously idealistic movements in the North. Even as he& #8217 s enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram& #8217 s resolve to rescue the family he left behind endures. This is the dramatic story of an atrocity inflicted on generations of women, men, and children& #8212 the violent and capricious separation of families& #8212 and the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today& #8217 s most exciting thinkers and writers, The Water Dancer is a propulsive, transcendent work that restores the humanity of those from whom everything was stolen. Praise for The Water Dancer & #8220 Ta-Nehisi Coates is the most important essayist in a generation and a writer who changed the national political conversation about race with his 2015 memoir, Between the World and Me. So naturally his debut novel comes with slightly unrealistic expectations& #8212 and then proceeds to exceed them. The Water Dancer . . . is a work of both staggering imagination and rich historical significance. . . . What& #8217 s most powerful is the way Coates enlists his notions of the fantastic, as well as his fluid prose, to probe a wound that never seems to heal. . . . Timeless  and  instantly canon-worthy.& #8221 & #8212 Rolling Stone
