'A book that shifted my life... Epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant' VIOLA DAVIS on Wild Seed

'Butler's evocative, often troubling novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human' NEW YORK TIMES

A PATTERNIST NOVEL: BOOK THREE

Blake Maslin is a doctor. In an alternate America marked by volatile class warfare, he and his twin daughters are taken captive by armed men demanding urgent medical care.

In an isolated desert compound, the family encounter a collective of people suffering from an unknown and deadly disease. They appear sickly yet possess unnatural strength, torn between the dangerous compulsion to infect others or to hold on to their own humanity.

In the following hours, Blake and his daughters each must make a vital choice: risk everything to escape infection and warn the rest of the world, or accept their place in this strange new society.

One of the most significant literary artists of the twentieth century. One cannot exaggerate the impact she has had -- Junot Diaz

Butler's prose, always pared back to the bone, delineates the painful paradoxes of metamorphosis with compelling precision ― Guardian

A dark, compelling and still horribly resonant time travel story ― Independent

[Her] evocative, often troubling, novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human ― New York Times

No novel I've read this year has felt as relevant, as gut-wrenching or as essential... If you've ever tweeted "All Lives Matter", someone needs to shove Kindred into your hand, and quickly ― The Pool

Kindred is that rare magical artifact . . . the novel one returns to, again and again ― Harlan Ellison

One cannot finish Kindred without feeling changed. It is a shattering work of art ― Los Angeles Herald-Examiner

[A] must-read novel ― BBC

Everyone should read at least one novel by the grand dame of science fiction, and Kindred is a perfect (and harrowing and disturbing and brilliant) place to start ― Refinery 29

The immediate effect of reading Octavia Butler's Kindred is to make every other time travel book in the world look as if it's wimping out... This is a brilliant book, utterly absorbing, very well written, and deeply distressing. It's very hard to read, not because it's not good but because it's so good ― Tor
