The Bondswoman's Narrative: Rare treasure!

The Bondwoman's NarrativeThe Bondwoman's Narrative by Hannah Crafts

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An African-American scholar unearthed and subsequently published the first known piece of fiction written by a former slave. 1/3 of the book is his story of research and publication, 1/3 is the novel itself, and 1/3 is footnotes. Very interesting!
