The Confessions of Nat Turner - William Styron

We're all in this game together.

 

William Styron

 

Novelist William Styron (born June 11, 1925) was both admired and controversial. Black activists called for boycotts of The Confessions of Nat Turner, written from the POV of the leader of a slave revolt. The sexually explicit Sophie's Choice, which won the National Book Award, was often banned in schools.
