This is a fascinating historical novel, based on a 19th century diary of an American white man who was sold as a slave in Africa. And the book is so gorgeous, with imitation leather hardcover.
‘Standing here in the grandeur of this chamber,’ he said, leaning back on his heels, still staring out at Clara, ‘we area million miles from the Hellfire land I am attempting to describe. I encourage the audience to conjure the heat, the sand, the thirst, in their minds.’
After I had been offered my ration, he turned to us and said in perfect English:
“There is a way all of you can gain your freedom. I swear it. You can drink ten skins each, eat the finest meat, and regain your honour.”
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!
You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too,
so that other TT participants can add the book
to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
