Charles Johnson’s Tale Of Slaving, Seafaring And Philosophizing
http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/04/05/specials/johnson-tale.html

Misadventures In The Slave Trade
http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/04/05/specials/johnson-middle.html
“There are problems with Charles Johnson’s third novel that might seem to call forth from a reviewer the old cheap-shot treatment. But the genre switches of ‘Middle Passage,’ from period bodice-ripper to metaphysical drama, are – like every other aspect of this fairly short book – heroic in proportion. There’s an endearing and determined recklessness at work here.”
