  • THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves. by Anderson, M. T.
    Anderson, M. T.
    THE ASTONISHING LIFE OF OCTAVIAN NOTHING, Traitor to the Nation, Volume II: The Kingdom on the Waves.

    Edition: First printing.

    Cambridge, MA: Candlewick Press, (2008.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Sequel to his National Book Award winner. Although these two books which follow the adventures 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. Slightly oversized. 561 pp plus author's historical note. ISBN: 9780763629502.

    Condition: Fine in near fine dust jacket.
