  • Shows the unmistakable touch of a gifted writer

    The New Yorker
  • I think I needed to read a book like this to remember what is possible. I think I needed to remember what happens when you pair a gifted literary mind to an epic task. Homegoing is an inspiration

    Ta-Nehisi Coates, National Book Award winning author of 'Between the World and Me'
  • Wildly ambitious debut by a 26-year-old writer . . . It's impossible not to admire the ambition and scope of Homegoing . . . By its conclusion, the characters' tales of loss and resilience have acquired an inexorable and cumulative emotional weight

    Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
  • Gyasi's remarkable debut novel.... is a devastating account of America....a quality that distinguishes Homegoing is its empathetic capacity to explore horror without ever losing sight of humanity or hope

    Sunday Times 3 To Watch
  • A very, very fine piece of's the kind of book I'd press into the hands of a teenager or someone in their early 20s who has been asking questions about the world and say if you want to know why the world is this way, try this book for starters

    Naomi Alderman
  • [A] commanding debut . . . will stay with you long after you've finished reading. When people talk about all the things fiction can teach its readers, they're talking about books like this

    Marie Claire
  • Gyasi gives voice, and an empathetic ear, to the ensuing seven generations of flawed and deeply human descendants, creating a patchwork mastery of historical fiction

  • An astonishing epic debut

  • The best book I have read. I laughed, gasped and cried within a matter of a few pages. Starting on Ghana's Gold Coast and ending at Stanford University, Gyasi takes you on an emotional rollercoaster through one family story

  • Homegoing is a novel I wish I could have read when I was a young woman. An intelligent, beautiful and healing read, destined to become a classic
