Product Details


“Many novels have been written about slavery, but this one is original, stirring, vividly personal and painfully intense.” —Los Angeles Times

“The sort of book that ought to be read out loud. Both eerie and saddening, [and] filled with tragedies, it is also about survival. In its strong rhythms and colloquial expression, this book is a living woman’s monologue.” —The New York Times Book Review

“What most distinguishes Family . . . is the persistant affirmation of the power of the human spirit to do battle with evil—and to win, even if only for a while.” —Chicago Tribune

“What a voice. . . . Cooper celebrates family, freedom, perseverance, life, and . . . powerful voices finally heard.” —The Atlanta Constitution

“With power and grace, Cooper weaves the dialect, styles and myths of the South into a portrait of the hell that was slavery…. Masterful.”
Publishers Weekly
