Joseph Knight - James Robertson

Book 8 in this challenge and the second of 3 books on slavery that I will be reading. This is an historical novel based on a ground-breaking legal case fought in late C18th Scotland. A hard-hitting novel with some stomach churning detail but a great read nonetheless.
BBC Radio 4 will be broadcasting an interview with the author on its book club program at 16:00 GMT 7 October 2007. I was lucky enough to be at the recording. Perhaps my question will even be aired!
Full review and more details of the recording here.
