Staff Reviews

A must-read, and a great entry point to Octavia Butler's work! This classic time travel novel tells the story of a Black woman who is inexplicably yanked back in time to a pre-Civil War America and encounters her enslaved ancestors. Brilliantly written with thought-provoking themes. Be sure to watch the Hulu series adaptation after reading!

— Susie


This 25th anniversary edition, about a modern black woman who is snatched away to the antebellum South, celebrates a classic work with much to say about love, hate, slavery, and racial dilemmas, then and now (Los Angeles Herald Examiner).
