    Description
    The first science fiction written by a Black woman, Kindred has become a cornerstone of Black American literature. This combination of slave memoir, fantasy, and historical fiction is a novel of rich literary complexity. Having just celebrated her 26th birthday in 1976 California, Dana, an African-American woman, is suddenly and inexplicably wrenched through time into antebellum Maryland. After saving a drowning white boy there, she finds herself staring into the barrel of a shotgun and is transported back to the present just in time to save her life. During numerous such time-defying episodes with the same young man, she realizes the challenge she's been given: to protect this young slaveholder until he can father her own great-grandmother. Author Octavia E. Butler skillfully juxtaposes the serious issues of slavery, human rights, and racial prejudice with an exciting science fiction, romance, and historical adventure. Kim Staunton's narrative talent magically transforms the listener's earphones into an audio time machine.

    Description
    Mas de treinta y cinco anos despues de su lanzamiento, Parentesco sigue atrayendo a nuevos lectores con su profunda exploracion de la violencia y la perdida de la humanidad causada por la esclavitud en Estados Unidos, y el impacto complejo y duradero que aun tiene este hecho historico en la actualidad. La obra mas famosa de Butler, aclamada por la critica, cuenta la historia de Dana, una joven negra que de repente e inexplicablemente es transportada desde su hogar en la California de la decada de 1970 hasta la guerra civil. Mientras viaja en el tiempo entre ambos mundos, uno en el que es una mujer libre y otro en el que forma parte de su propia y complicada historia familiar en una plantacion del sur, se enreda aterradoramente en la vida de Rufus, un conflictivo esclavista que es a la vez un antepasado de Dana, y en las vidas de las muchas personas que estan esclavizadas por el. Considerada como una obra esencial dentro de los generos feminista, de ciencia ficcion y fantasia, y una piedra angular del movimiento afrofuturista, se han vendido mas de medio millon de copias de Parentesco. La interseccionalidad de la raza, la historia y el tratamiento de las mujeres abordada en este libro sigue siendo un tema critico en el dialogo contemporaneo, tanto en el aula como en la esfera publica. Inquietante, convincente y de una rica imaginacion, Parentesco ofrece una mirada inquebrantable a nuestra complicada historia social.
