Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl
Harriet Jacobs
84 Installments

The narrative of escaped slave Harriet Jacobs who fled an unspeakably cruel master in a thrilling bid for freedom. Ironically, though she had written it in part to startle northern whites out of complacency, the publisher considered her depiction of the sexual assaults she’d suffered too “shocking” for their readership and stopped serialization before the memoir was complete.

This was a very interesting book. It makes one think about some of the realities of the slavery that once was a part of this country. While there were some parts of the book that went rather slow. Most of it left you wanting to ask for the next installment so you could see what happened next. Good book

Horrific and excellent. I was fascinated by its casual depiction of the complexity of human relations despite the &quot;peculiar institution.&quot; My great,great,great grandfather and his fathers owned 80+ slaves in Warrenton, NC, and it is a peak into their past and mine. A stinging rebuttal to all Southern revisionists who say the Civil War was just about &quot;States' Rights.&quot; Some may be put off by the mid 19th century writing style but the story come through loud and vivid. A companion piece to read with Styron's Pulizter Prize winning novel, &quot;Confessions of Nat Turner, Slave,&quot; as the narratives are set only a few counties apart. Highly recommended!

This book, so wonderfully written in the authors own voice, was very compelling and eye opening. I truly feel that young people should read these memoires and learn of the atrocities that happened so as might appreciate and love more.

Passionately written, and easy to understand. A bit of polishing may be nice if it won't tamper with the originality
