Hannah’s cousin Rebecca put her laptop on her books like three different times.
Definitely a mistake. Unless she is an alien…
I was recently commissioned to photograph five generations of descendants of Solomon Northup, author of “12 Years a Slave”. The feature can be seen in this week’s newsstand ‘Oscar’s Edition’ of The Hollywood Reporter as well as here.
However small, I feel honored to play a role in the sharing of Solomon Northup’s legacy. It was definitely an experience that I’ll always treasure. Enjoy!
I think the lack of a start-to-finish narrative left me unsettled throughout this book. Being a collection of separate stories connected through the two main characters, and having been conditioned by many of the other books on the list, I really never felt drawn in by the book. I think the themes were strong and well-presented, but the shifting timeline made it difficult to determine whether the story being presented was a dream/fantasy, memory, or “present” moment. I’d be remiss if I didn’t still recommend this book to others, because I think it was the format that left me short, not the plot itself.
Ironically, I cannot let it go
What a fantastic book! Extremely well-written, the plot is moving, your emotions are wrenched by the characters, and have to constantly battle between your desire to keep reading and the urge to put the book down because of the disgust with the entire industry and what the workers were going through. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this book!
