 Bezit  -  Valerie Martin
Uit het zuiden van de Verenigde Staten klinkt een stem die in de literatuur nog maar zelden heeft geklonken: die van een vrouwelijke slavenhouder.
Manon Gaudet is knap en humeurig, alleen met zichzelf begaan en verveeld. Ze is als bruid naar een suikerplantage in het noorden van New Orleans gekomen met aan haar zijde een duur stuk bezit: de jonge slavin Sarah.
Manons echtgenoot dwingt Sarah al snel zijn minnares te zijn, en maakt haar zwanger. Manon vertelt ons over haar verleden en heden, haar verlangens en haar dromen, op het moment dat oproer onder de slaven niet lang meer kan uitblijven. Het is een stem uit het hart van een morele duisternis.
