Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Inspired by a true story, this suspenseful and deeply moving novel chronicles an incident of courage and rebellion that took place aboard a disease-riddled slave ship returning from Africa. It was called Zong, and when disease threatens to infect all aboard, the ship's captain orders his crew to seize the sick men, women, and children and throw them into the sea. But one female slave, Mintah, survives drowning and secretly climbs back onto the ship. From her hiding place, she attempts to rouse the remaining captives to rebel against the killings, becoming a dangerous force on the ship -- a force which is reckoned with in a shocking court case. Powerful and poetic, Feeding the Ghosts is an unforgettable testimony to the struggle against oblivion and a reminder about history overlooked and truth distorted.

From the Author:

The Zong was a real slave ship where slaves were tossed overboard due to disease in 1781. D'Aguiar says, "I came across an exhibit of a slave ship at The Maritime Museum in Liverpool.... A document at the gallery mentioned the Zong... one of the slaves who was thrown overboard managed to climb back on board. This contradicts the captain's claims that the slaves he threw away were too sick to survive the crossing." This incident, which provided inspiration for Feeding the Ghosts, also inspired a painting by J.M.W. Turner called "The Slave Ship."
