Styron based this riveting novel on an historical incident that shook the pre-Civil War South to its very foundations. Nat Turner led a bloody revolt against the tyranny of slavery during which many white men, women and children were brutally killed. The book is an examination of the social climate that incubated the hatred, tracing Turner's life back to his childhood when his owner recognized enough potential in the boy to teach him to read. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
