Perhaps the best written of al] the slave narratives, 12 Years a Slave is a harrowing memoir about one of die darkest periods in American history. It recounts how Solomon Northup born a free man in New York, was lured to Washington, D.C., in 1841 with the promise of fast money, then drugged and beaten and sold into slavery He spent the next twelve years of his life in captivity on a series of Louisiana plantations.áAfter his rescue, Northup published this exceptionally vivid and detailed account of slave life. It became an immediate bestseller and today is recognized for its unusual insight and eloquence as one of the very few portraits of American slavery produced by someone as educated as Solomon Northup, or by someone with the dual perspective of having been both a free man and a slave.
