Title Details
Kindred by Butler, Octavia E.
Kindred
by Butler, Octavia E.
 
The twenty-fifth-anniversary edition of the classic novel that has sold over 250,000 copies Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back again and again for Rufus, yet each time the stay grows longer and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana"s life will end, long before it has even begun. "In Kindred Octavia Butler creates a road for the impossible, and a balm for the unbearable. It is everything the literature of science fiction can be." -Walter Mosley "[Kindred] is a shattering work of art with much to say about love, hate, slavery and racial dilemmas, then and now." -Los Angeles Herald Examiner "Truly terrifying. . . . A book you"ll find hard to put down." ¯Essence "Butler"s books are exceptional. . . . She is a realist, writing the most detailed social criticism and creating some of the most fascinating female characters in the genre . . . real women caught in impossible situations." ¯The Village Voice "Butler"s literary craftsmanship is superb."-The Washington Post Book World
