Review quote

"Belasco gives us a wide range of first-person perspectives, from protective family members, to fellow abolitionists such as Oliver Wendell Holmes, to African American colleagues and critics such as Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs. The result is a complex and very human portrait. An excellent book for both the specialist and the general reader."--Elizabeth Ammons, Harriet H. Fay Professor of Literature, Tufts University, and editor, "Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin": A Casebook"
