We are delighted to have Man Booker Prize winner Marlon James back in Dalkey to unveil his latest work Black Leopard, Red Wolf. The critics are raving about it. The Washington Post said that “James has spun an African fantasy as vibrant, complex and haunting as any western mythology and nobody who survives reading this book will ever forget it”; the notoriously sniffy Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times declared that “with Tracker and the Leopard, James has created two compelling and iconic characters, characters who will take their place in the pantheon of memorable and fantastical superheroes”.
But why take their word for it? Come and hear the man himself talking to Emma Dabiri.
