Feeding the Ghosts

(1997)
A novel by

 
Awards
James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
Inspired by a true story, this suspenseful and deeply moving book chronicles an incident of courage and rebellion that took place aboard a disease-riddled slave ship returning from Africa. The vessel is named Zong, and when illness threatens to infect all on board, the ship's captain orders his crew to seize the sick men, women, and children and thow 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.

Powerful and poetic, Feeding the Ghosts is an unforgettable testimony to the struggle against oblivion and a reminder of history overlooked and truth distorted.
