Kindred (Black women writers series)

Butler, Octavia E. Author

Image Not Available

On her 26th birthday, Dana and her husband are moving into their apartment when she starts to feel dizzy. She falls to her knees, nauseous. Then the world falls away.

She finds herself at the edge of a green wood by a vast river. A child is screaming. Wading into the water, she pulls him to safety, only to find herself face to face with a very old looking rifle, in the hands of the boy's father. She's terrified. The next thing she knows she's back in her apartment, soaking wet. It's the most terrifying experience of her life ... until it happens again.

The longer Dana spends in 19th century Maryland - a very dangerous place for a black woman - the more aware she is that her life might be over before it's even begun.

Review:

Kindred is that rare magical artifact ... the novel one returns to, again and again (Harlan Ellison, muti-award-winning author)

One of the most original, thought-provoking works examining race and identity ( Los Angeles Times)

One cannot finish Kindred without feeling changed. It is a shattering work of art ( Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)

The immediate effect of reading Octavia Butler's Kindred is to make every other time travel book in the world look as if it's wimping out ( Tor.com)

Book Description:

A modern black woman is transported to 19th century Maryland, where she faces the cruel realities of slavery. Kindred, Octavia E. Butler's masterpiece, is an essential read and 'a shattering work of art' ( Los Angeles Herald-Examiner).
