Rivers Solomon presents An Unkindness of Ghosts, a novel of powerful and imaginative world building that speaks directly to our most urgent political concerns, in the spirit of Octavia Butler.
For generations, the HSS Matilda, a space vessel organized much like the antebellum South, has ferried the last of humanity to a mythical Promised Land. On its way, the ship's
leaders have imposed harsh moral restrictions and deep indignities on dark-skinned sharecroppers that live on the lowdeck. But revolution is brewing – if they’re willing to sow the
seeds of civil war. Solomon presents their hotly anticipated debut novel in conversation with Glory Edim, founder of Well-Read Black Girl.
