Product description

From the Back Cover

Set in the American Deep South, each of the powerful novellas collected here concerns an aspect of the lives of black people in the post-slavery era, exploring their resistance to white racism and oppression. Originally published in 1938, Uncle Tom's Children was the first book from Richard Wright, who would continue on to worldwide fame as the author of numerous works, most notably the acclaimed novel Native Son and his autobiography, Black Boy.

--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Four 'novellas' or long short stories, in Negro dialect, hard-clipped, dynamic, illustrating the fact of continued servitude of black to white. Lynching, flood and death, rape, 'relief'--current problems which give a certain topical value to the content of the stories from the social angle. The author won the $500 prize for the best manuscript submitted by the W. P. A. Writers' Project. He writes well, with a sparsity of detail which tells more through its very restraint. Faithful reproduction of Negro speech and thought."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (1938)"

"Taking for its characters Negro men and women at bay in the oppressive Southern environment, the book represents one of the few instances in which an American Negro writer has successfully delineated the universals embodied in Negro experience."

-- "Ralph Ellison, literary critic, scholar, and New York Times bestselling author" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
