The Confessions of Nat Turner by William Styron

This book is based on the true story of Nat Turner, who led a slave revolt in Virginia in 1831. Narrated in the first person as he awaits death in a jail cell, it depicts a good man's transformation into an avenging angel, all the while encompassing the betrayals, cruelties, and humiliations that were slavery.
William Styron was born in Virginia.
