Read full description of the books:



A deeply moving recasting of one of the most controversial characters in American literature, Huckleberry Finn's Jim"
Written in the great literary tradition of novels of American slavery, "My Jim" is told in the incantatory voice of Sadie Watson, an ex-slave who schools her granddaughter with lessons of love she learned in bondage. To help her granddaughter confront the decisions she needs to make, Sadie mines her memory for the tale of the unquenchable love of her life, Jim. Sadie's Jim was an ambitious young slave and seer who, when faced with the prospect of being sold, escaped down the Mississippi with a white boy named Huck. Sadie is suddenly left alone. Worried about her children, convinced her husband is dead, reviled as a witch, and punished for Jim's escape, Sadie's will and her love for Jim, even in absentia, animate her life and see her through.
Told with spare eloquence and mirroring the true stories of countless slave women, "My Jim" re-creates one of the most controversial characters in American literature. A nuanced critique of the great American novel, "My Jim" stands on its own as a haunting and inspiring story about freedom, longing, and the remarkable endurance of love. "From the Hardcover edition.
