WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY BOOKER PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR MARLON JAMES

Soon after a local eccentric leaps from a rooftop in a vain attempt at flight, Macon ‘Milkman’ Dead III is born. Brought up by his well-off black family to revere the white world around him, Milkman strives to make sense of his conflicting identities. Always seeking flight in some way, he leaves his Michigan home for the South, retracing the steps of his forebears in search of his own buried heritage and is introduced to an entire cast of strivers and seeresses, liars and assassins; the inhabitants of a fully realised black world.

Evocative and kaleidoscopic, Song of Solomon is a brilliantly imagined coming-of-age tale.
