This is a novel in the guise of the tape-recorded recollections of a black woman who has lived 110 years, who has been both a slave and a witness to the black militancy of the 1960s. In this woman, Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure, a woman equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in The Sound and the Fury. Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, has endured, has seen almost everything and foretold the rest. Download and start listening now!

    " I don't think Mr. Gaines missed much--this book seemed to be written in a realistic manner. And the author writes well, too. "

    " I'm always fascinated with Black-American history. I cannot wrap my head around slavery. To be owned? Not only that, but what happens when you're told you're free? You have nothing and are still viewed as nothing in some places. No, not completely nothing, but livestock; less than human. This fictional autobiography is told from the perspective of an elderly black woman recounting her past as she journeyd through her new "freedom". It is filled with tragedy and hardship, but there is hope speckled throughout. It is a slow-seeping hope that one day all Americans will not only be treated equally, but believe that they are equal. "

    " Painful and thought-provoking. A look at a beautiful life during an ugly, ugly time. "
