"'As I look at it now,' says Alex Haley, 'it seems there was a meant-to-be quality about 'Roots'. I first heard the story told by my grandmother as a child, that was the real beginning....Whenever we children came around, she would repeat the story of the man she called 'the African,' how he was captured and what happened to him in America. After a while we started acting out the incidents, play-acting, recreating everything she told us, and it became an indelible memory for me....Although it's advertised as nonfiction, perhaps we should call it 'faction.' Every statement in 'Roots' is accurate in terms of authenticity....The beginning is a re-creation, using novelistic techniques, but as it moves forward more is known and it is more factually based.'"Haley, Alex is the author of 'Roots ', published 2007 under ISBN 9781593154578 and ISBN 1593154577.
