    In his boldly imagined first novel, Ta-Nehisi Coates, the National Book Awardwinning author of Between the World and Me, brings home the most intimate evil of enslavement: the cleaving and separation of families.

    Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of herbut 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's ever known.

    So begins an unexpected journey that takes Hiram from the corrupt grandeur of Virginia's proud plantations to desperate guerrilla cells in the wilderness, from the coffin of the deep South to dangerously utopic movements in the North. Even as he's enlisted in the underground war between slavers and the enslaved, Hiram'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 childrenthe violent and capricious separation of familiesand the war they waged to simply make lives with the people they loved. Written by one of today'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.

    Advance praise for The Water Dancer

    ';In prose thatsingsand imagination thatsoars, Coates further cements himself as one of this generation's most important writers, tackling one of America's oldest and darkest periods withgraceandinventiveness.This is bold, dazzling, and not to be missed.'Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    ';Coates brings his considerable talent for racial and social analysis to his debut novel, which captures the brutality of slavery and explores the underlying truth that slaveholders could not dehumanize the enslaved without also dehumanizing themselves.

    Beautifully written, this is a deeply and soulfully imagined look at slavery and human aspirations.'Booklist (starred review)
