Natives of My Person

George Lamming
A compelling novel of slavery and colonialism

Description

Praise / Awards

  • "Natives of My Person is undoubtedly George Lamming's finest novel. It succeeds in illuminating new areas of darkness in the colonial past that the colonizer has so far not dealt with, and in this sense it is a profoundly revolutionary and original work."
    —Jan Carew, George Mason University

  • "As a work of literature I consider this novel Lamming's most consummate achievement. [Although] it was first published in the early seventies it seems completely contemporaneous with the kind of interest in reexamining history that has marked the recent work of African American writers like Toni Morrison and Alice Walker."
    —Rhonda Cobham-Sander, Amherst College
