    Anderson, M. T.
    THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party.

    Edition: First printing.

    Cambridge, MA: Candlewick Press, 2006. dj. Hardcover first edition - National Book Award winner, NY Times Notable Book, Horn Book award winner and more. Although the two books in this series which follow the adventures of a young boy, an African slave who is at times the subject of a "scientific experiment", pampered and taught Latin and Greek at one point, brutalized at other times, have been classified as 'young adult,' they are incredibly well-written, emotionally complex, thoughtful and satisfying historical novels, ones which give a different picture of the American revolution, and ageless in their appeal. Very highly recommended. 351 pp plus an author's note. ISBN: 9780763636791.

    Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket.
