Abstract

The brutal depiction of the nineteenth-century slave economy of the Southern American States in this multiple prize-winning novel owes much to Toni Morrison’s Beloved (1987), earlier slave narratives as well as memoirs such as Northrop Fry’s Twelve Years a Slave (1853), and in particular to Octavia E. Butler’s Kindred (1979).
