“The child is dead. There is nothing left to know." - Tracker
Black Leopard, Red Wolf is a fantasy novel written by Jamaican-born Marlon James. Published in 2019 by Riverside Books, this was James' fourth book, and first since his 2014 Man Booker Prize winning A Brief History of Seven Killings. BL,RW is a stunning physical addition to a bookshelf. The pages are a crisp, modern edge with all-black pages indicating section breaks (and new maps!). The cover is a deep, royal purple with a gold sans-serif author monogram. The spine is hemoglobin-red with just the particulars: title, author, press.
The dust jacket is breath-catching.
