The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume One: The Pox Party
M.T. Anderson
Set in Revolutionary Boston, M. T. Anderson's mesmerizing novel takes place at a time when Patriots battled to win liberty while African slaves were entreated to risk their lives for a freedom they would never claim. The first of two parts, this deeply provocative novel reimagines past as an eerie place that has startling resonance for readers today.
