Críticas:

"LOSE YOUR MOTHER is wider and deeper than Alex Haley's landmark ROOTS, much less sentimental and incredibly smart. It reads like a cross between Bruce Chatwin and Toni Morrison, top-notch travel-writing and scintillating prose and soul. Hartman makes the Middle Passage more personal than heretofore imaginable both for Africans and African Americans. In so doing Hartman goes a long way toward healing an unhealable hurt. Absolutely searing. This book is destined to be a landmark all its own. Probably the most meaningful book I've read this year." --Randall Kenan, author of "A Visitation of Spirits
""Combining the depth and breadth of a scholar of slavery with the imagination and linguistic facility of a novelist, Saidiya Hartman has written a most poignant meditation on the ironies of black identity in a postmodern, multicultural world. Hartman has found a most compelling narrative voice that enables the dreaded Middle Passage and the tomb of slavery to speak to a new generation of readers. This is a memoir about loss, alienation, and estrangement, but also, ultimately, about the power of art to remember. "Lose Your Mother" is a magnificent achievement." --Henry Louis Gates Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University
""Lose Your Mother "is a profound utterance of humanity, an innovative and compelling re-narrativization of terror by a scholar of extraordinary subtlety of vision, insight and empathy." - Hazel V. Carby, Charles C. & Dorathea S. Dilley Professor of African American Studies, Yale University
"Hartman moves beyond archives and attempts to hear the voices of ghosts. "Lose Your Mother" is one of those landmark texts thatsucceeds at remembering the horrors of the Middle Passage and the historical legacy that experience left on both sides of the Atlantic." - Robin D.G. Kelley, author of "Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
"""Lose Your Mother" is a radiant book that takes readers through much which feels beyond imaginative confrontation. Saidiya Hartman' s words and thinking are unflinching, true, and beautiful, and only she could have written this extraordinary book." --Elizabeth Alexander, Professor of African-American Studies, Yale University

Reseña del editor:

In Lose Your Mother, Saidiya Hartman traces the history of the Atlantic slave trade by recounting a journey she took along a slave route in Ghana. Following the trail of captives from the hinterland to the Atlantic coast, she reckons with the blank slate of her own genealogy and vividly dramatizes the effects of slavery on three centuries of African and African American history.

The slave, Hartman observes, is a stranger torn from family, home, and country. To lose your mother is to be severed from your kin, to forget your past, and to inhabit the world as an outsider. There are no known survivors of Hartman's lineage, no relatives in Ghana whom she came hoping to find. She is a stranger in search of strangers, and this fact leads her into intimate engagements with the people she encounters along the way and with figures from the past whose lives were shattered and transformed by the slave trade. Written in prose that is fresh, insightful, and deeply affecting, Lose Your Mother is a "landmark text" (Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams).
