Summary: ''In the years just after the American Revolution, London was the unlikely refuge for thousands of black Americans who had fought for the British in exchange for a promise of freedom. Incomparable World is their story, an unconventional debut novel that follows the adventures of three African-American rogues who have escaped their master's lash only to find themselves outcast once again - but this time on the harsh streets of London's West End.'' ''After the British defeat, Buckram, ...show moreGeorgie George, and William Supple sail to London, preferring to attempt a new life there than face possible recapture and a return to slavery. Penniless, without any prospects for employment, and treated as outsiders by British society, they are forced into a life of hustling and petty crime. Their only hope for escape, Georgie George manages to convince them, is an outrageous robbery that would make them rich beyond their wildest dreams.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
