Homegoing is Ghanaian-American author Yaa Gyasi's first novel -- but what a debut.  The novel moves from the Gold Coast of West Africa to the plantations of Mississippi, from the missionary schools of Ghana to the bars of Harlem, spanning three continents and eight generations.  It is an intimate, gripping epic that shows how the memory of captivity is inscribed on the soul of a nation.

‘Homegoing is a novel I wish I could have read when I was a young woman. An intelligent, beautiful and healing read, destined to become a classic.’  Zadie Smith

‘Une incroyable saga, un talent inouï. Vertigineux.’ Estelle Lenartowicz, Lire.

Homegoing was awarded the PEN/ Hemingway Award & the NBCC’s John Leonard Award. It was shortlisted for the British Book Award – Debut of the Year.
