The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ernest J. Gaines

Narrated By: Tonya Jordan

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2007

Duration: 8 hours 14 minutes


This is a novel in the guise of the tape-recorded recollections of a black woman who has lived 110 years, who has been both a slave and a witness to the black militancy of the 1960s. In this woman, Ernest Gaines has created a legendary figure, a woman equipped to stand beside William Faulkner's Dilsey in The Sound and the Fury. Miss Jane Pittman, like Dilsey, has seen and "endured" almost everything, and foretold the rest.

"Stunning. I know of no black novel about the South that exudes quite the same refreshing mix of wit and wrath, imagination and indignation, misery and poetry. And I can recall no more memorable female character in Southern fiction since Lena of Faulkner's Light in August than Miss Jane Pittman herself." -Life
