  • Now in paperback comes the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel adaptation of Kindred, Octavia E. Butler’s literary science-fiction masterpiece. First published in 1979, Kindred tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and mysteriously transported from her home in 1970s California to the antebellum South.

    Dana moves between worlds: one in which she is a free woman and another where she is part of a complicated familial history on a southern plantation, forced to interact with and save the life of Rufus, a conflicted white slave holder and one of her ancestors.

    Frightening, compelling, and richly detailed, Kindred takes an imagined yet unstinting look at our complicated social history.

    Adapted by celebrated academics Damian Duffy and John Jennings with the full co-operation of the Butler estate, the paperback edition of Kindred explores the violence, loss of humanity, and twisted relationships engendered by slavery, in a format that introduces the work to a new generation of readers.
