Good Lord Bird: A Novel
Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction
The story of a young boy born a slave who joins John Brown’s antislavery crusade in 1856 —and who must pass as a girl to survive. An absorbing mixture of history and imagination, and told with McBride's meticulous eye for detail and character, The Good Lord Bird is both a rousing adventure and a moving exploration of identity and survival.
