Beyond the Door of No Return

Translated by Sam Taylor

From the author of the International Booker Prize-winning At Night All Blood is Black: a moving and immersive adventure story set in eighteenth century Senegal

The Door of No Return, on the island of Goree off the coast of Senegal, is where millions of Africans last touched their home continent's soil, before they were transported to slavery in the Americas. When French naturalist Michel Adanson travels to Senegal in 1749, he hears the story of a woman who passed through the door... but then returned. He begins to search for this fabled woman, and soon his search becomes an obsession that leads him on a desperate journey through a land torn apart by slavery.

Set against the backdrop of the Age of Enlightenment and the Atlantic Slave Trade, Beyond The Door of No Return is a thrillingly subversive story of romance and adventure.
