Synopsis:

Valerie Martin’s Property delivers an eerily mesmerizing inquiry into slavery’s venomous effects on the owner and the owned. The year is 1828, the setting a Louisiana sugar plantation where Manon Gaudet, pretty, bitterly intelligent, and monstrously self-absorbed, seethes under the dominion of her boorish husband. In particular his relationship with her slave Sarah, who is both his victim and his mistress.
Exploring the permutations of Manon’s own obsession with Sarah against the backdrop of an impending slave rebellion, Property unfolds with the speed and menace of heat lightning, casting a startling light from the past upon the assumptions we still make about the powerful and powerful.


Review:

"There isn't much of a plot....But the pages still fly by, never less than enthralling, thanks to Martin's quick mastery of her setting....A nimble, enlightening and horrific story about the morally corrosive effects of slavery...."

Kirkus, 11/15/2002

Review:

"[Valerie Martin] creates a heroine as intriguing as she is repellent. And she forces the reader into the complicity and discomfort of a voyeur."

Kathryn Harrison, New York Times Book Review, 02/23/2003
