Called “an inspiration” by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Homegoing is a novel of breathtaking sweep and emotional power that traces three hundred years in Ghana and along the way also becomes a truly great American novel. Extraordinary for its exquisite language, its implacable sorrow, its soaring beauty, and for its monumental portrait of the forces that shape families and nations, Homegoing heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction.

Here, Yaa Gyasi , author of the June LibraryReads pick, chats with the folks at Beaks and Geeks about diaspora, history, her ambitious debut novel, and more.
