The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest, or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now---
Title: Kindred by Octavia Butler
(Prologue) "I lost an arm on my last trip home. My left arm."Friday 56:
"He laughed, but it sounded like sympathetic laughter."Comment: Kindred was published in 1976. It is a time travel story where the main character, a black woman named Dana, and her white husband travel back to Maryland in the 1800s. Maryland was a slave state. They get to see the horrors of slavery up close and personal. (Well, Dana sees it much closer than Kevin.)
I am reading this book as part of the Classics Club Spin event. I've wanted to read something by Octavia Butler so a long time. It is disturbing but well done.
