Notes From Your Bookseller It was Kiese Laymon, acclaimed author of Heavy and Long Division, who introduced us to Gayl Jones' indelible debut, Corregidora. Like her editor Toni Morrison and contemporary Toni Cade Bambara, Jones tells a powerful story of emancipation through gorgeous prose, leaving a permanent mark on the reader. Palmares is her first novel in more than two decades and, in it, she returns with an incredible story of slavery and freedom cut through with magical realism and a universal mythology. Not to be missed by fans of The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates or The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. The epic rendering of a Black woman’s journey through slavery and liberation, set in 17th-century colonial Brazil; the return of a major voice in American literature. First discovered and edited by Toni Morrison, Gayl Jones has been described as one of the great literary writers of the 20th century. Now, for the first time in over 20 years, Jones is ready to publish again. Palmares is the first of five new works by Gayl Jones to be published in the next two years, rewarding longtime fans and bringing her talent to a new generation of readers. Intricate and compelling, Palmares recounts the journey of Almeyda, a Black slave girl who comes of age on Portuguese plantations and escapes to a fugitive slave settlement called Palmares. Following its destruction, Almeyda embarks on a journey across colonial Brazil to find her husband, lost in battle. Her story brings to life a world impacted by greed, conquest, and colonial desire. She encounters a mad lexicographer, desperate to avoid military service; a village that praises a god living in a nearby cave; and a medicine woman who offers great magic, at a greater price. Combining the author’s mastery of language and voice with her unique brand of mythology and magical realism, Jones reimagines the historical novel. The result is a sweeping saga spanning a quarter century, with vibrant settings and unforgettable characters, steeped in the rich oral tradition of its world. Of Gayl Jones, the New Yorker noted, “[Her] great achievement is to reckon with both history and interiority, and to collapse the boundary between them.” Like nothing else before it, Palmares embodies this gift.
