An incredible, true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. No fiction, no exaggeration. This special edition of the book commemorates the revival and the deserving success of an astounding, evergreen story in the form of Steve Mcqueen's acclaimed movie 12 Years a Slave. The film was awarded the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, and received nine Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and Best Actor.
Twelve Years a Slave is a memoir by Solomon Northup. It is a narrative of a black man who was born free in New York state but kidnapped in Washington, D.C., sold into slavery and kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana. After being published in several editions in the 19th century, the book fell into obscurity for early 100 years, until it was re-discovered.
