About the Book

By all accounts, the bludgeoning murder in 1949 of a taxi driverby brothers George and Rufus Hamilton was a "slug-ugly" crime. Georgeand Rue were hanged for it. Repelled and intrigued by his ancestral cousins'deeds, George Elliott Clarke uncovered a story of violence, poverty and shame—astory that led first to the Governor General's Award–winning ExecutionPoems and culminated in Clarke's brilliant and darkly comic debut novel.

Named an editor's choice by The Bookseller inthe UK, George & Rue is a book about death that brims with fiercevitality and the sensual, rhythmic beauty that so often defines Clarke'swriting.
