Book Launch of “The Black Peacock” by Rachel Manley (Cormorant Books)

Please join us for the Toronto launch of “The Black Peacock,” the debut novel by Governor General’s Literary Award-winning author Rachel Manley.

The Black Peacock reads like great poetry. Its language is exquisite, rich with enduring images and memorable characters who try to navigate their way through life and love’s strange games and contradictions. Lethe and Daniel’s love story is both triumphant and a heartbreak, set against a stark yet beautiful, stubborn but forgiving background. A must read.” – Marina Nemat
