Roots

by Alex Haley
£10.99   paperback  Vintage Publishing (Vintage Classics) (2018)

Roots by Alex Haley The radical, Pulitzer Prize-winning account of Alex Haley's own twelve-year search for his family's origins: a powerful memoir, a history of slavery and a landmark in African-American literature.
 
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY DAVID OLUSOGA
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award
 
Tracing his ancestry through six generations of architects, lawyers, blacksmiths, farmers, freedmen and slaves, Alex Haley's research took him back to Africa and a sixteen-year-old youth named Kunta Kinte. Torn from his homeland and brought to the slave markets of the New World, re-imagining Kunta's journey would allow Haley to explore his family's deep and distant past.

"The book is an act of love, and it is this which makes it haunting."
(New York Times)
