The novel is named after its main character and begins when Washington is eleven years old. He’s a slave at a Barbados sugar plantation, overseen by a contemptible master. The master’s brother, Titch, visits and chooses Wash as his manservant. Washington’s new role introduces him to science, nature, and his artistic talent. But it also throws him into a new life that he’s unprepared for. He must unravel and make sense of loyalty, friendship, freedom, and ownership.
