"This is a novel in the guise of thenbspnbsptape-recorded recollections of a black woman who hasnbspnbsplived 110 years, who has been both a slave and anbspnbspwitness to the black militancy of the 1960's. In thisnbspnbspwoman Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure,nbspnbspa woman equipped to stand beside WilliamnbspnbspFaulkner's Dilsey in The Sound And ThenbspnbspFury. Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, hasnbspnbsp'endured,' has seen almost everything and foretold thenbspnbsprest. Gaines' novel brings to mind othernbspnbspgreat works The Odyssey for the waynbspnbsphis heroine's travels manage to summarize thenbspnbspAmerican history of her race, and HuckleberrynbspnbspFinn for the clarity of her voice, fornbspnbspher rare capacity to sort through the mess of yearsnbspnbspand things to find the one true story in it all.nbspnbsp-- Geoffrey Wolff, Newsweek.Stunning. I know of nonbspnbspblack novel about the Southnbspnbspthat excludes quite the same refreshing mix of witnbspnbspand wrath, imagination and indignation, misery andnbspnbsppoetry. And I can recall no more memorable femalenbspnbspcharacter in Southern fiction since Lena ofnbspnbspFaulkner's Light In August than MissnbspnbspJane Pittman. -- Josh Greenfeld,nbspnbspLife
