Waterstones Says

The forerunner of the ‘slave narratives’ that became a literary sensation in eighteenth century society, Equiano’s incredible journey from ownership by a British naval officer to leading the call for abolition is a compelling, humbling read. 

An exciting and often terrifying adventure story, and a precursor to the famous nineteenth-century slave narratives, Equiano's The Interesting Narrative recounts his kidnapping in Africa aged ten, his service as a slave of an officer in the British Navy for ten years, and his life after he bought his freedom in 1766, growing to become one of the foremost figures of the anti-slavery movement in Britain.
The Interesting Narrative is a spirited autobiography, a tale of spiritual quest and fulfillment and a sophisticated treatise on religion, politics and economics.
