Black Leopard, Red Wolf

Black Leopard, Red Wolf

by Marlon James

Available on OverDrive!

Author, Marlon James, jokingly referred to the book as the African Game of Thrones, but there’s very little to laugh about in this dark fantasy. Tracker, and a group including a shapeshifter, a giant and enigmatic witch, are hired to locate a boy under suspicious circumstances. Throughout their adventure, the reader is challenged to witness uncomfortable truths that fit frightfully into both his imagined world and our own. James’ compelling voice and elegant prose buoy the narration over an otherwise disturbing and elegiac journey.
