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.
