I read this because I assigned it in a history course entitled "#oldnewmedia." It is an excellent edition of the first narrative published by a fugitive slave. The editors did an outstanding job explaining the significance of its publication; the annotations are crisp, clean, and concise. I especially liked how the author juxtaposes life in the slave south and the questionably "free north." As far as my intellectual interests in book culture, there's a lot to say about the book. The author's motives, tactics, audience are a consistent feature of the narrative. The book raises questions about literacy, print, and markets outside of the usual context of radical abolitionist sponsorship.

This is a really remarkable memoir, and more interesting because its first edition predates the more famous narrative of Frederick Douglass by 20 years, and because it was published without white sponsorship. The added historiographical and personal information by the editors is also quite interesting.
