Not a fictional novel, neither is it a book with lots of factual information about any of the characters. a lot of facts were lost or simply never recorded.
It's like you're standing in the slave graveyard listening to Andi dreamily tell the stories of the people buried there. She starts out with facts and then tries to think of what it would have been like for that person, why they did certain thinhgs, how they felt... It's easy to get caught up in the story, as she paints a picture of someone who really lived but ho we know barely anything about.
Statistics are derived from numbers about people, but those people are and were never just a number, no matter what people treated them like. They were a life with tears, laughts, dreams.
Names on a list can at best be found on gravestones and it's not just a grave or a name; It's a life with a story, complex, and it's sad if they get forgotten.
I love these stories, and want them with as much fact as possible but not dry and factual. Andi does a great job of doing this gently and tactfully, admitting she doesn't know, but can only try to undertand, geuss, emphatize.
