The Prophets

by Robert Jones Jr

With lyricism reminiscent of Toni Morrison and James Baldwin, Robert Jones Jr. tells an unflinching story of forbidden love between two enslaved men in Mississippi whose relationship threatens all around them.  I started this on my Covid sickbed but found it was too much like eating porridge…I knew it would be good for me but I just couldn’t get through it… I am the only person on earth who felt this way so rather listen to the critics who are all raving about it!
An outstanding novel, delivering tender, close-up intimacy, but also a great sweep of history – The Observer
Ambitious and intense – Vanity Fair
A spellbinding debut – Cosmo
‘This visionary and deeply evocative debut carves a radiant love story out of the bleakest of landscapes.’ Waterstones – Best Books to Look Out For in 2021
