Reviews
Stunning. . . . This illuminating portrait dispenses with the myths.
A masterpiece....[W]ill rightfully assume its place as the standard biography of a truly great figure in the nation's past.
Absolutely nonpareil. . . . This biography--tender and critical, respectful yet observant--presents a character of Frederick Douglass that is more thoroughly human than seemed possible in careful scholarship.--Nell Irvin Painter
Compelling. . . . Suggests that the Age of Douglass was this nation's greatest epoch. . . . What a time. What a book.--Ishmael Reed
