Description

An historical adventure through London and the sugar-cane colony of Demerara, British Guyana. David Dabydeen takes inspiration from the art of Hogarth and its dens of iniquity: we meet slaves, lowly women on the make, lustful overseers and pious Jews. But it is in his master’s copy of Johnson’s Dictionary that the slave Francis finds the transformative power of words, and his own path to freedom and redemption. show more
