9780099498261: Crossing the River

Caryl Phillips' ambitious and powerful novel spans two hundred and fifty years of the African diaspora. It tracks two brothers and a sister on their separate journeys through different epochs and continents: one as a missionary to Liberia in the 1830s, one a pioneer on a wagon trail to the American West later that century, and one a GI posted to a Yorkshire village in the Second World War.

Crossing the River won the James Tait Black Memorial Award in 1994, and was shortlisted for the 1993 Booker Prize.

Review:

"A compassionate, forceful and profoundly moving revelation" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"[T]here are gems of impassioned writing quilted within this ambitious cross-cultural novel of loss and reconciliation" ( Sunday Times)

"Epic and frequently astonishing" ( The Times)

" Crossing the River is dense with event and ingeniously structured. It requires concentration and is worth it" ( Independent)

"An ambitious exploration of oppression, loss and reconciliation that employs a collage of styles and ranges across continents and centuries" (Nicci Gerrard Observer)

From the Publisher:

A Booker shortlisted novel by one of the finest writers of his generation
