From the Internationally Bestselling author of WASHINGTON BLACK winner of the 2018 Scotiabank Giller Prize and finalist for the Man Booker Prize.

Once a young Ghanaian emigrant of outstanding promise, Samuel Tyne is languishing as a low-level civil servant in Calgary. When he unexpectedly inherits a mansion in what was formerly an all-black town, he seems to have been offered that fabled second chance, even if his wife and twin daughters are profoundly--and strangely--set against it. But as his desire for success intensifies, Samuel Tyne finds his life disintegrating around him.
