Podrobný popis:

The astonishing memoir of a free man who was sold into slavery in Louisiana where he was kept for 12 yearsa powerful, riveting condemnation of slavery, and a story soon to be introduced to a new audience through a major filmTricked by two men offering him a job as a musician in New York state in 1841, Solomon Northup was instead drugged and kidnapped. Threatened with death, Northup was forced to assume a new name and fake past. Taken to Louisiana on a disease-ridden plague ship, he was initially sold to a cotton planter. In the 12 years that followed he was sold to many different owners who treated him with varying levels of savagery, including forced labor, scant food, and numerous beatings. Eventually Northup succeeded in contacting Samuel Bass, a white carpenter whom he knew to be sympathetic to the cause of black people. Bass contacted Northup's family and together they gained the necessary paperwork to travel to Louisiana to retrieve him. Northup pressed charges against his captors but in a triumph of irony the case was heard in Washingtonmeaning that as a black man he could not testify against the accused (in the end they were able to countersue him.) A true-life testament to tremendous courage and tenacity in the face of unfathomable injustice, Northup's account is also of extreme interest due to the meticulous recordings of slave life. Unique in its firsthand nature, the book became a runaway bestseller. (a true story of betrayal, kidnap and slavery) Tricked by two men offering him a job as a musician in New York

State in 1841, Solomon Northup was drugged and kidnapped. His life

in jeopardy, he was forced to assume a new name and fake past.

Taken to Louisiana on a disease-ridden plague ship, he was

initially sold to a cotton planter. In the twelve years that follow

he is sold to many different owners who treat him with varying

levels of savagery, forced labour, scant food and numerous beatings

are his regular fare. Against all odds, Northup eventually succeeds

in contacting a sympathetic party and manages to get word to his

family. The ensuing rescue and legal cases are no less shocking and

intriguing than the rest of the tale. The fantastic film adaptation

of 12 Years a Slave directed by Steve McQueen, starring Chiwetel,

Ejiofor, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Benedict Cumberbatch is

the winner of the People's Choice award at the Toronto

International Film Festival. Hitting UK cinemas 18th October 2013!
