Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

Octavia E. Butler's ground-breaking masterpiece, with an original foreword by Ayobami Adebayo.

'The marker you should judge all other time-travelling narratives by' GUARDIAN'

[Her] evocative, often troubling, novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human' NEW YORK TIMES

'No novel I've read this year has felt as relevant, as gut-wrenching or as essential.

In 1976, Dana dreams of being a writer. In 1815, she is assumed a slave. When Dana first meets Rufus on a Maryland plantation, he's drowning. She saves his life - and it will happen again and again.

Neither of them understands his power to summon her whenever his life is threatened, nor the significance of the ties that bind them. And each time Dana saves him, the more aware she is that her own life might be over before it's even begun. This is the extraordinary story of two people bound by blood, separated by so much more than time.

Beautiful Cover, Amazing Story

The depth and layers of Octavia Butler's storytelling is magnificent. Every time I read this book I experience something new. I stumbled across this version on a blog one day and was disappointed to learn it wasn't sold in the US, but was able to get a copy from The Cornrow!
