Sex and Bondage in Three Colors
Publisher : Green Hills Press
Description
The story of Toussaint Louverture and the tragic nation of Haiti that he founded has never been told with such power and imagination as respected historian and master story teller James Baker does in his novel Sex and Bondage in Three Colors.  In this revolutionary book he has created a new literary genre, one critics have called "historical fantasy."  History limits itself to known facts.  Historical fiction limits itself to creating scenes and dialogue only in places where facts are not known and only if the created scenes and dialogue do not violate known facts.  Baker's historical fantasy tells a story of historical figures without limits, setting his fantasy free to soar.  This novel ranges over the interconnected lives of such men as Toussaint, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Thomas Jefferson and demonstrates how their distinct and often conflicting visions of the future collide.  He describes in delicious detail the sexual exploits, many of them with disastrous results, of white, black, and brown men who break free of their bonds only to be shackled by their desires.  There is rape, incest, miscegenation, and unbridled lust as a host of men and women conceive and give birth to our cruel modern world.
