The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party


The author M.T. Anderson sets out to describe the indescribable. In Revolutionary-era  Boston, Octavian’s role in the household is slowly revealed through diaries, letters, and other manuscripts . It is a moving but horrific tale that discusses slavery, freedom, intellectual life & human nature. Written for grades 9 & up – Adults will find this is a fascinating story told in an original voice. Highly recommended.
