Summary
"Valuable new version of Biografía de un cimarrón includes Hill's expert translation; brief but informative preface about Esteban Montejo (the book's first-person narrator); Barnet's afterword (which replaces, albeit partially, his original introduction), in which he explains his understanding of literatura testimonal; and a glossary of terms. Original work was first translated as Autobiography of a runaway slave by Jocasta Innes (1968)"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
