Descrizione

`Eleanor Henderson is in possession of an enormous talent' Ann Patchett `A superb novel whose roots can be traced to Harper Lee and Carson McCullers` Oprah Magazine Genus Jackson was killed in Cotton County, Georgia, on a summer midnight in 1930, when the newborn twins were fast asleep. They lay head to toe in a cradle meant for one, Winnafred on one side and Wilson on the other. Only if you looked closely - and people did - could you see that the girl was pink as a piglet, and the boy was brown. In a house full of secrets, two babies - one light-skinned, the other dark - are born to Elma Jesup, a white sharecropper's daughter. Accused of her rape, field hand Genus Jackson is lynched and dragged down the Twelve-Mile Straight, the road to the nearby town.
