, Perhaps the best written of all the slave narratives, is a harrowing memoir about one of the darkest periods in American history. It recounts how Solomon Northup, born a free man in New York, was lured to Washington, D.­C., in 1841 with the promise of fast money, then drugged and beaten and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years of his life in captivity on a Louisiana cotton plantation. After his rescue, Northup published this exceptionally vivid and detailed account of slave life. It became an immediate bestseller and today is recognized for its unusual insight and eloquence as one of the very few portraits of American slavery produced by someone as educated as Solomon Northup, or by someone with the dual perspective of having been both a free man and a slave.

In queste memorie, pubblicate per la prima volta nel 1853, troviamo tutta la sua storia: mentre si trovava a Washington con due sconosciuti che gli avevano proposto un ingaggio come violinista, venne assalito nel cuore della notte, drogato, legato e trascinato al mercato degli schiavi. Lì fu subito minacciato: se avesse rivelato di essere nato libero, sarebbe stato ucciso. Iniziarono così dodici anni di schiavitù, di violenze, brutalità e sofferenze senza fine. Solomon capì che gli schiavi valevano meno del bestiame: potevano essere picchiati, costretti a lavori massacranti, potevano morire nella completa indifferenza.
