    I had no idea what Kindred is about prior to reading it I previously read Octavia Butler's Wild Seed and thought it was marvelous and Kindred seems to be her most popular work judging by Goodreads ratings So buying a copy of Kindred without knowing anything about it was a no brainer I even deliberately avoided looking at the book's synopsis before hand I just wanted to get to know the book as I read on I hoped for a pleasant surprise whic

The first science fiction written by a black woman Kindred has become a cornerstone of black American literature This combination of slave memoir fantasy and historical fiction is a novel of rich literary complexity After reading Parable of the Sower I had to go right out and buy Butler s most famous novel Kindred I was not disappointed It is amazing that this book was written in 1976 and feels just as fresh and timely in 2016 Dana a young African American woman who has just started a career as a writer in California is suddenly and inexplicably yanked back in time to Maryland in 1815 where she must save a white boy named Rufus from drowningThis becomes only the first of many time traveling episodes for Dana She uickly realizes that Rufus is one of her own ancestors mentioned in the family Bible Somehow they are connected across time because they are kindred To assure her own future Dana must keep Rufus alive until he has children who will some day be Dana s family line Unfortunately Rufus gets in a lot of troubleOnly moments pass in the modern world each time Dana is called away but months or even years pass in the world of 1815 Dana watches Rufus grow from a little boy into an adult slave owner who inherits his father s plantation She tries her best to influence Rufus development but can she overcome the poisonous institution of slavery that infects everyone it touchesThe novel is a potent metaphor for the modern African American experience and the American experience in general We may be lulled into the feeling that we have advanced that we have made progress as a society But at any moment we may be yanked back into the past and reminded of where we came from That heritage of slavery exploitation and racism is an integral part of our national identity and it is never far below the surface It can overcome us in an instant Like Dana we must be constantly on guard well euipped and ready to be yanked out of our supposedly modern and enlightened existence to deal with the ugliest parts of our nature We are kindred with the Americans of 1815 whether we like it or not

Staring into the barrel of a shotgun and is transported back to the present just in time to save her life During numerous such time defying episodes with the same young man she realizes the challenge she’s been give A uniue look at slave era America thanks to a time traveling twist Should be shelved with the classics Riveting from the first page and doesn t let upI m always a fan of throwing in a little sci fi but here it really really works Most novels on this subject tend to look at race relations from one time period Nothing wrong with that but there was something wholly shocking and eye opening about having these characters hop from a modern 1970s lens to pre Civil War societyThis is my first Octavia E Butler novel but I m already a huge fan Which of her books should I read next
