Charlotte Press 2014 Revisionist Writer Award and a 2014 Pitch Perfect Pick from Underground Book Reviews. Revisionist Lamont Tanksley Sr. introduces his debut novel. Revised from Harriet Jacobs' original 1861 book, 'Incidents In The Life of A Slave Girl', Tanksley creates a substantially differing tale. When inherited by an owner "who asks for what he could take," a young lesbian mulatto slave battles wits with her master and his jealous wife to maintain her sanity, dignity, and virginity. While seeking her freedom and running from trouble, she stumbles upon herself. In desperation, Linda leaps further down the rabbit hole of her awakening womanhood. One might assume that Shades of Grey has submitted to 12 Years a Slave in this novel about faith, family, and the incidents in the life of a girl. This book is not the tale your mother read.
