Barbara Chase-Riboud is an award-winning poet, novelist, scholar, and sculptor. Hottentot Venus, a 2004 BCALA Literary Award winner, focuses on Sarah Blaartman, an African tribewoman who, because of her prominent sexual characteristics, was paraded as a freak before audiences in England and Paris. This mesmerizing novel reflects the racism and cruelty of turn-of-the-century Eurocentric culture, but it also reveals Sarah's remarkable strength of spirit. Download and start listening now!

    " It was all right. Good story, but it wasn't easy to keep up with who was talking or even IF someone was actually talking. I wouldn't recommend it, but feel free to read it if you're interested. *chuckles* "

    " This book made me sad. I was disturbed by the perceptions of blacks but realize that some people still feel that way today. The main character lived a horrible life and her death was no better. "
