In 1831, a black man awaits death in a Virginia jail cell. His name is Nat Turner, and he is a slave, a preacher, and the leader of the only effective slave revolt in the history of the South's "peculiar institution." William Styron's vastly ambitious novel—winner of the 1968 Pulitzer Prize—is Turner's confession, made to his jailers under the duress of his God. A narrative that depicts a good man's transformation in an avenging angel, it encompasses all the cruelties, betrayals, and humiliations that made up slavery—and that still scar the collective psyches of both races. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new afterword by Styron, addressing the controversy his novel generated.

"He has begun the common history—ours."—James Baldwin
