This is an official tie-in edition of this eloquent and powerful memoir, to accompany Steve McQueens major new film starring Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Quvenzhane Wallis. Solomon Northup is a free man, living in New York. Then he is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Drugged, beaten, given a new name and transported away from his wife and children to a Louisiana cotton plantation, Solomon will die if he reveals his true identity. This is the searing true story of his twelve years as a slave: the endless brutality, daily humiliations and constant fear, but also the small ways in which he and his fellow men try to survive. Twelve Years a Slave is a unique, unflinching record of slavery from the inside, and the incredible account of one man whose life was ripped from him - and who fought to get it back. A moving, vital testament to one of slaverys many thousands gone who retained his humanity in the bowels of degradation. (Saturday Review). I could not believe that I had never heard of this book. It felt as important as Anne Franks diary, only published nearly a hundred years before. (Steve McQueen).
