I am a graduate in English literature and language from Oxford and in religious studies from NYU. In 1999, I co-founded Lantern Books, a publisher of books on vegetarianism, animal advocacy, spirituality, and natural healing.

Washington Black by Esi Edugyan

Clear rating
At once a (literal) flight of fancy; a moving and deeply poignant study of what it feels like to be slave; an investigation of the life of science; and a picaresque and even phantasmagoric tale of a boy searching for a father and an identity, WASHING ...more

I'm the publisher of this book, and thought I'd say a few words about it. This is one of those easy-to-read, frontlines-of-science books that features interviews with lots of futurist thinkers and has a genial style and approachable tone. The book, h ...more
