A first-person narrative that depicts a good man's transformation into an avenging angel

In 1831 Nat Turner awaits death in a Virginia jail cell.

He is a slave, a preacher, and the leader of the only effective slave revolt in the history of 'that peculiar institution'.

William Styron's ambitious and stunningly accomplished novel is Turner's confession, made to his jailers under the duress of his God.

Encompasses the betrayals, cruelties and humiliations that made up slavery - and that still sear the collective psyches of both races.
