Such a great yarn, so beautifully written, with this mystical twist that I love. Huge fan of Coates' writing: he manages to use just enough words to paint the scene but never more. And, yes, I appreciate this clear-eyed look at slavery that's often hard to it should be. I can't really understand the full impact of slavery in the US, but this feels like a step in that direction.
