Random House, Inc. Before the Civil War, there lived in Louisiana, people unique in Southern history. For though they were descended from African slaves, they were also descended from the French and Spanish who enslaved them. In this dazzling historical novel, Anne Rice chronicles four of these so-called Free People of Color--men and women caught periolously between the worlds of master and slave, privilege and oppression, passion and pain. "Anne Rice seems to be at home everywhere....She makes us believe everything she sees." THE NEW YORK TIMES
Baker & Taylor Set in nineteenth-century New Orleans, the story depicts the gens de couleur libre, or the Free People of Color, a dazzling yet damned class caught between the worlds of white privilege and black oppression. Reprint.
