Winner of the Scotiabank Giller Prize Man Booker Prize Finalist 2011 An Oprah Magazine Best Book of the Year Shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction Berlin, 1939. The Hot Time Swingers, a popular jazz band, has been forbidden to play by the Nazis. Their young trumpet-player Hieronymus Falk, declared a musical genius by none other than Louis Armstrong, is arrested in a Paris café. He is never heard from again. He was twenty years old, a German citizen. And he was black. Berlin, 1952. Falk is a jazz legend. Hot Time Swingers band members Sid Griffiths and Chip Jones, both African Americans from Baltimore, have appeared in a documentary about Falk. When they are invited to attend the film's premier, Sid's role in Falk's fate will be questioned and the two old musicians set off on a surprising and strange journey. From the smoky bars of pre-war Berlin to the salons of Paris, Sid leads the reader through a fascinating, little-known world as he describes the friendships, love affairs and treacheries that led to Falk's incarceration in Sachsenhausen. Half-Blood Blues is a story about music and race, love and loyalty, and the sacrifices we ask of ourselves, and demand of others, in the name of art.

A dazzling new novel of slavery and freedom from Esi Edugyan, winner of the Giller Prize for the international bestseller Half-Blood Blues When two mysterious English cousins arrive to take the helm of a Barbados sugar plantation, nervousness and fear run high. Washington Black—an eleven-year-old field slave who has known no other life—is aghast at suddenly finding himself the personal servant of one of these men. His new master is the eccentric Christopher Wilde—naturalist, explorer, scientist, inventor and abolitionist—whose single-minded pursuit of the perfect aerial machine mystifies and frightens all around him. Through Wilde, Washington is initiated into a world of wonder: a world where the night sea viewed from a hilltop shivers with light, where a simple cloth canopy can propel a man across the sky, where even a boy born into chains can embrace a life of dignity and meaning. Then, on a disastrous voyage, Wilde disappears. Washington is forced to make his way back to the civilized world alone. One day, however, a man appears in Washington’s new life, making claims about the past. Is this man truly the long-lost Wilde? If so, what are the real motives behind his return? And is it possible that his resurrection will destroy everything? Based on an infamous criminal case of the nineteenth century, Washington Black tells the story of a friendship and its betrayal. From the sultry cane fields of Barbados to the icy wastes of the Canadian Arctic, from the pristine English countryside to the mud-drowned streets of San Francisco, it is the story of a world destroyed and made whole again, where certainty seems unattainable, and men must remain strangers even to themselves.

Samuel Tyne always believed he was destined for greatness. Emigrating to Canada from Ghana in the 1960'S was the first step on this path, but fifteen years later his grand plans have stalled. He now has a wife Maud, twin thirteen year old daughters Chloe and Yvette, and a mind-numbing job. But then he is thrown a life line. His uncle Jacob dies, leaving him a grand but crumbling house in the town of Aster, and Samuel persuades his reluctant family to seize this chance for a new beginning. At first Aster seems perfect, but soon the town's faultlines are revealed, and the family begins to feel the strain. Samuel opens an electrical shop, but the business falters as he falls victim to his own outlandish ambitions, trying to build computers when all the townspeople want is lightbulbs and radios. His wife is unhappy, and as for his daughters - they are drifting into a private world of two, their behaviour becoming ever more sinister and disturbing to everyone around them. When their school friend Ama comes to stay and nearly drowns in mysterious circumstances, and then a series of fires around the town go unexplained, Samuel and Maud must face up to the secrets within their own family, secrets that threaten to completely tear apart the life they have built.
