Description

A visceral reimagining of 1780s London, showcasing the untold stories of African-American soldiers grappling with their post-war freedom

‘Remarkable’ David Dabydeen


In the years just after the American revolution, London was the unlikely refuge for thousands of black Americans who fought for liberty on the side of the British.

Buckram, Georgie and William have earned their freedom and escaped their American oppressors, but on the streets of London, poverty awaits with equal cruelty.

Ruthless, chaotic and endlessly evolving, London forces them into a life of crime, and a life on the margins. Their only hope for a better future is to concoct a scheme so daring, it will be a miracle if it pays off.

Bursting with energy and vivid detail, Incomparable World boldly uncovers a long-buried narrative of black Britain.


‘Adventurous and exuberant … a rollicking thriller [that] pulsates with vivacity’ Bernardine Evaristo


Selected by Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo, this series rediscovers and celebrates pioneering books depicting black Britain that remap the nation.
