Edward P. Jones won the PEN/Hemingway Award and was nominated for the National Book Award for his debut collection of stories, Lost in the City.
'The Known World is an achievement of epic scope and architectural construction, which nonetheless reads like a string of folk tales told by someone slyly watching for your reaction -- tales told by a conjurer who distracts you so well that you never know what hit you.' New York Times'The best new work of American fiction to cross my desk in years.' Washington Post'Jones has woven nothing less than a tapestry of slavery, an artifact as vast and complex as anything to be found in the Louvre. Every thread is perfectly in place ... The first paragraph exquisitely connects, nearly 400 pages later, with the last. Against all the evidence to the contrary that American fiction has given us over the past quarter-century, The Known World affirms that the novel does matter, that it can still speak to us as nothing else can.' Houston Chronicle'An exemplar of historical fiction that will subdue your preconceptions, enrich your perceptions and trouble your sleep.' Newsday'A multifaceted exploration of the culture of slavery ... A major achievement.' Time Out New York'There is grief and fear, genuine affection and envy in this complex and fine novel.' Philadelphia Inquirer
