Read in March, 2008

A graphic, honest, highly-politicized (naturally) slave narrative set in West Africa and later Haiti, based in part on actual events, sprinkled with sarcastic and snide remarks condemning those who continue to foster the same prejudices in the author's time (1930s). Violent and disturbing but very well-done and worth the read. Too bad no one seems to know it exists.
