    Story
    (22)

    Harriet Jacobs’ autobiography, written under the pseudonym Linda Brent, details her experiences as a slave in North Carolina, her escape to freedom in the north, and her ensuing struggles to free her children. The narrative was partly serialized in the New York Tribune, but was discontinued because Jacobs’ depictions of the sexual abuse of female slaves were considered too shocking. It was published in book form in 1861.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl?

    I couldn't bare the performer's accent. She didn't seem to know of she was trying to British or southern.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I have no idea. I am returning this title for another version of the book with a different narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Audio Élan’s performances?

    No
