About This Book
"Evokes entire landscapes...a master of voices."
—New York Times Book Review
“What Chevalier has done is recast the play to illuminate the peculiar trials of our era…a fascinating exercise… provides some wicked delight. She’s immensely inventive about it all.” —Washington Post
The author of international bestseller Girl with a Pearl Earring returns with an engrossing story. Chevalier begins with an enthralling idea—If Othello were a schoolboy in the seventies—and masterfully transplants the original story of Shakespeare’s Othello to a 1970s suburban elementary school outside of Washington D.C. Chevalier exposes the tragedy of racism, sexism, betrayal, jealousy, and brutality through the adolescence. Osei Kokote, a Ghanaian son of a diplomat, falls in love with Dee—a golden-haired, sensitive, the most popular girl in the school. Ian, a duplicitous classmate and a monarch of the playground, repulsed by the new boy and manipulated others to break the friendship between Osei and Dee and make Osei’s life inexorably miserable.
