Long out of print in America, Alexandre Dumas's most daring narrative is now available in this major new translation by Tina A. Kover. Filled with intrigue, romance, and deadly vengeance,Georgesis the story of a wealthy mulatto boy who is driven from his island home by racist landowners. Returning to Mauritius as an accomplished young man, Georges pits his strength against a powerful plantation owner, leading a dramatic slave uprising and claiming the heart of a beautiful white woman.Georgesstands apart as the only book by Dumas that explores the potent subject of race. Praise forGeorges: "A rousing and vivid adventure . . . packed with action and atmosphere." The Columbus Dispatch "A remarkable discovery . . . We are indebted to Werner Sollors and Jamaica Kincaid for providing us with a critical lens for the journey Dumas has created out of his own generous and expansive imagination." Rudolph P. Byrd, Emory University "As compelling and relevant today as it was back in the 1840s, when it was first published." Adrienne Kennedy, author ofFunnyhouse of a Negro
