An intoxicating blend of magical realism and history, She Would Be King reimagines the remarkable foundation story of Liberia. Three strangers, all survivors of colonial violence, use their unique powers to protect the fledgling nation from threats both within and without. Gbessa, Norman Aragon, and June Dey, along with a broad, marvelously written cast of characters drawn from British Jamaica, the American South, Europe, and the west coast of Africa, represent the many voices of and paths leading to the formation of independent Liberia. With a special emphasis on the roles of women in Liberian nationhood, and an unerring instinct for the unique dialects and governing ideologies of the many groups she writes about, Moore’s perceptive and completely riveting debut is an exciting addition to the emerging canon of 21st-century African literature. We are proud to present She Would Be King as Volume 76 of Indiespensable.
