Full Synopsis
Lyrical, poetic, and hypnotizing, The Coming tells the story of a people's capture and sojourn from their homeland across the Middle Passage—a traumatic trip that exposed the strength and resolve of the African spirit. Extreme conditions produce extraordinary insight, and only after being stripped of everything do they discover the unspeakable beauty they once took for granted. This powerful, haunting novel will shake listeners to their very souls.

The Coming is powerful. And beautiful. . . . This is a work to be proud of.” ---Charles Johnson, National Book Award winner for Middle Passage

"Part homage to the proud and diverse cultures of Africa, part nightmare of the people stolen from those lands, The Coming seduces us with poetry, then breaks our hearts, but ultimately inspires us to celebrate the indomitable soul of humanity.” ---George Weinstein, author of Hardscrabble Road

“History as horror story, horror story as fable, fable as fervent prayer. Daniel Black’s mesmerizing novel, The Coming, is all three simultaneously. And one more, too—a love letter to a people who were lost once but have been found.” ---Victor LaValle, author of The Devil in Silver
