I know its probably cheating to pimp books I read for class on goodreads, but I really can't help it with this one. If you're even a little interested in the history of slavery, or really in "race relations" generally, then read this beautiful book. It's memoir-cum-history-cum-cultural studies and it's fabulous. And also devastating.
