Best-seller and period piece …

Solitary Praxis: Harriet Beecher Stowe was born on this date in 1811, she wrote a book about slavery, and -- according to popular myth -- she helped start the American Civil War.

It was the right book at the right time. In terms of getting across its message, it is rather skillfully done. It just is not literature.
