"A surging, superb book that closely examines the anatomy of southern racial prejudice and reveals some awful truths. In the process, [Wright] has given us a social document of unusual worth. . . This book is not for the squeamish. Wright's catalog of lynching, police brutality, meanness, and emotion running riot in a small town is calculated to disturb even the most callous. This story, balanced by Wright's compassion for his people, is an experience of almost nightmarish quality." --Roi Ottley, Chicago Sunday TribuneAbout the Author:
RICHARD WRIGHT (1908-1960) was born on a plantation in Roxie, Mississippi, and lived in the South until 1927, when he moved to Chicago. He later resided in New York City, and died in Paris as an expatriate. Among his many works are Native Son, Black Boy, The Outsider, Savage Holiday, and Lawd Today!
