Recommending Colum McCann’s Transatlantic: a novel.
A poetic novel of billowing language that blows up linear time and yet doesn’t lose sight of character. Ideal reading for Black History Month, with a strong Frederick Douglass narrative and an exploration of bondage in Ireland as well as in slave-holding states.
