Ann Donald speaks fondly of Ellen Feldsman’s Scottsboro, particularly as a book that lives up to the quotes on its cover.
Cover blurbs should be read with some scepticism, especially when they casually drop in the name of a famous person, usually used as a marketing trick.
But there are times when the boast actually delivers, as in author Lionel Shriver’s quote published on the jacket of Ellen Feldman’s Scottsboro: “Anyone who wants to appreciate the scale of the miracle that a Black man has been elected president of the United States should sit down with Scottsboro.”
