Twelve Years a Slave (Paperback)

Solomon Northup


Solomon Northup's brutal and heart-wrenching experiences have been unflinchingly brought to the big screen in the Oscar-winning film adaptation of Twelve Years a Slave, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

Now you can read Northup's incredible original narrative of his arduous years in this Penguin Classics paperback. A free man living in New York, Solomon is kidnapped and sold into slavery. After being beaten and given a new name, he is transported away from his family and forced to work in a cotton plantation. Constantly humiliated and unable to reveal his true identity through fear of death, he bonds with his fellow slaves as they try to survive...

An incredible true story, this book also features a foreword from the film's director Steve McQueen.
