READING: Twee halfzussen, Effia en Esi, groeien apart van elkaar op in het achttiende-eeuwse Ghana. Effia wordt uitgehuwelijkt aan een Engelsman, om vervolgens in weelde te leven. Esi wordt gevangengenomen, verkocht als slaaf en op de boot naar Amerika gezet. Weg naar huis vertelt over de levens van de nakomelingen van Effia en Esi in de daaropvolgende driehonderd jaar. Yaa Gyasi beweegt zich vrijelijk door de geschiedenis en tussen twee continenten - van de stammenstrijd en slavernij in Ghana naar de Burgeroorlog in Amerika, en van de kolenmijnen in het zuiden van de Verenigde Staten naar de volksverhuizingen richting Manhattan in de twintigste eeuw - en schetst zo een krachtig en indringend portret van volken in beroering.

READING: Winner of the NBCC's John Leonard First Book Prize A New York Times 2016 Notable Book One of Oprah’s 10 Favorite Books of 2016 NPR's Debut Novel of the Year One of Buzzfeed's Best Fiction Books Of 2016 One of Time's Top 10 Novels of 2016 “Homegoing is an inspiration.” —Ta-Nehisi Coates The unforgettable New York Times best seller begins with the story of two half-sisters, separated by forces beyond their control: one sold into slavery, the other married to a British slaver. Written with tremendous sweep and power, Homegoing traces the generations of family who follow, as their destinies lead them through two continents and three hundred years of history, each life indeliably drawn, as the legacy of slavery is fully revealed in light of the present day. Effia and Esi are born into different villages in eighteenth-century Ghana. Effia is married off to an Englishman and lives in comfort in the palatial rooms of Cape Coast Castle. Unbeknownst to Effia, her sister, Esi, is imprisoned beneath her in the castle’s dungeons, sold with thousands of others into the Gold Coast’s booming slave trade, and shipped off to America, where her children and grandchildren will be raised in slavery. One thread of Homegoing follows Effia’s descendants through centuries of warfare in Ghana, as the Fante and Asante nations wrestle with the slave trade and British colonization. The other thread follows Esi and her children into America. From the plantations of the South to the Civil War and the Great Migration, from the coal mines of Pratt City, Alabama, to the jazz clubs and dope houses of twentieth-century Harlem, right up through the present day, Homegoing makes history visceral, and captures, with singular and stunning immediacy, how the memory of captivity came to be inscribed in the soul of a nation.

READING: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi | Summary & Analysis Preview: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi is a novel in stories about the Atlantic slave trade and its aftermath. The novel begins with the stories of two African half-sisters of the Fante and Asante tribes: Effia and Esi. Effia is born in the late eighteenth century in Fanteland on Africa’s Gold Coast, on the night of a devastating fire near her father’s compound. Her adoptive mother, Baaba, immediately resents her, because Effia is the daughter of her father Cobbe’s house girl. In 1775, when Effia is young, British soldiers from the Cape Coast Castle come to the village. Effia wants to marry Abeeku Badu, who is in line to be chief. But to prevent Effia from marrying him, Baaba tells Effia that she must hide the blood from her first period. She knows that as long as people think Effia is premenstrual, she won’t be permitted to marry a Fante man, per tribal customs… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

READING: Winner of the NBCC's John Leonard First Book Prize A New York Times Notable Book A Washington Post Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year: NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, Oprah.com, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Mother Jones, BuzzFeed, Minneapolis Star Tribune, St. Louis Post-Dispatch Ghana, eighteenth century: two half sisters, Effia and Esi, are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the notorious Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and shipped off to America to be sold into slavery. With breathtaking scope, Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the slave traders of the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the Asantes' struggle against British colonialism to the first stirrings of the American Civil War, from the jazz of twentieth-century Harlem to the sparkling shores of modern Ghana. Yaa Gyasi's extraordinary novel illuminates slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed--and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.

READING: Een generaties omspannend verhaal over een Koreaanse familie die een nieuw leven opbouwt in Japan Voor de lezers van Wilde zwanen en Het achtste leven Korea, 1900. Sunja, de veelgeprezen dochter van een arme maar trotse visser, valt voor een rijke vreemdeling aan de kust van haar geboortedorp. Hij belooft haar gouden bergen, maar wanneer ze zwanger wordt en ontdekt dat haar minnaar elders een gezin heeft, weigert ze zijn geld en bescherming. In plaats daarvan accepteert ze de hand van een jonge dominee, die haar meeneemt naar Japan. Sunja’s beslissing om haar geboorteland de rug toe te keren en de machtige vader van haar zoon af te wijzen, zet een reeks gebeurtenissen in gang die nog generaties lang na-echoot. Zo begint een grootse doch intieme kroniek van een uitzonderlijke familie, verbannen uit hun thuisland Korea en in de ban van het meedogenloze voortschrijden van de geschiedenis. Over Pachinko ‘Een krachtig, episch verhaal dat je nog lang bijblijft.’ New York Times Book Review ‘Een prachtig uitgewerkte, verslavende geschiedenis van het lijden en weer opbloeien van een Koreaanse familie in Japan.’ David Mitchell ‘Pachinko is een absolute aanrader. Een episch verhaal en pageturner ineen. Ik ben diep onder de indruk van dit boek.’ John Boyne ‘Duizelingwekkend. Een krachtige beschouwing over de offers die immigranten brengen om elders in de wereld een thuis op te bouwen. Lee bewijst hiermee te behoren tot de beste auteurs ter wereld.’ Junot Díaz ‘Alsof Dickens of Tolstoj hebben geschreven over een twintigste-eeuwse familie in Japan. Min Jin Lee schrijft over alle dingen die in goede romans horen te staan, maar ze stelt ook kwesties aan de orde die nog nooit eerder zo actueel waren.’ Gary Shteyngart ‘Pachinko kan zich in veel opzichten meten met het werk van grote negentiende-eeuwse schrijvers, zoals Dickens, Eliot, Hardy en de Brontës.’ Harpers Bazaar

Zo laat een moeder na haar dood een leegte na die haar dochter noch haar man weten te vullen en beseft een dertigjarige man tijdens de bruiloft van zijn jeugdliefde dat zijn eigen huwelijk voorbij is. De verhalen zijn uitzonderlijk mooi en kristalhelder van toon, rijk, elegant, wijs, gevoelig en subtiel. Met Vreemd land bewijst Lahiri dat ze een van de beste schrijvers van haar generatie is.

READING: De grootse nieuwe roman van de auteur van De jongen in de gestreepte pyjama en De grote stilte Voor de liefhebbers van De as van mijn moeder van Frank McCourt Ierland, 1945. Cyril wordt geboren als bastaardzoon van een verstoten tienermeisje. Het welgestelde echtpaar Avery adopteert hem, maar Cyril vraagt zich vaak af waarom, want zijn adoptieouders laten geen gelegenheid onbenut om hem op het hart te drukken dat hij geen echte Avery is. Hij voelt zich ook geen Avery, en hij voelt zich ook niet thuis in het katholieke naoorlogse Ierland. Pas als hij de flamboyante charmeur Julian Woodbead ontmoet, is de eerste stap naar de zoektocht van zijn identiteit gezet – een zoektocht die hem tot in Amsterdam en New York voert, in een poging het geluk en de liefde te vinden. John Boyne verbeeldt op fenomenale wijze de verlossende kracht van de menselijke geest, en laat de lezer en passant voelen hoe onwelkom de wereld kan zijn voor zoekende zielen. De pers over Wat het hart verwoest ‘Afwisselend slim, geestig en hartverscheurend triest. Dit is een schrijver op de top van zijn kunnen.’ Mail on Sunday ‘Groots en slim en vaak erg grappig.’ The Sunday Times ‘Een picareske, ronddwalende odyssee voor de afzonderlijke karakters. Het boek brandt haast van woede over de levens die worden verwoest door sociale minachting en zelfhaat. Een aanzienlijke prestatie.’ The Guardian ‘Een episch verhaal vol verve, humor en liefde. Dit zal een groot publiek aanspreken.’ The Irish Times ‘Boyne creëert licht in de verdoemenis, en humor in de meest hartverscheurend trieste situaties. Een fantastische leeservaring.’ Press Association

READING: 'Thuis maakt indruk als een uiterst zorgvuldig geschreven morele vertelling, die laat zien hoe het geloof de een optilt en de ander in het nauw drijft.' - NRC Handelsblad Glory Boughton keert terug naar het dorp Gilead om voor haar stervende vader te zorgen. Al gauw verschijnt haar broer Jack, de verloren zoon, die twintig jaar spoorloos was. Hij zoekt een toevluchtsoord, en wil in het reine komen met een verleden vol wangedrag en ellende. Jack, briljant, aandoenlijk en onvoorspelbaar, is een van de mooiste personages uit de moderne literatuur. Hij kan nergens aarden, is aan de drank, maar zijn vader aanbidt hem. Zijn pogingen om nader tot zijn zuster en zijn peetvader, buurman John Ames, te komen zijn even hartverscheurend als hopeloos.
