Product description


"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"

About the Author

Richard Wright (1908-1960) won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his novels, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation.

Adam Lazarre-White, best known for starring as Nathan Hastings on The Young & The Restless, also gained notoriety on Living Single, Girlfriends, Will & Grace, The Parkers, and in the Emmy Award-winning miniseries The Temptations. His other television and film credits include Heroes, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Deliver Us from Eva, Ocean's 13, All about You, and Forgiveness. Lazarre-White has many credits as a voice artist on commercial radio, television, and film. He graduated from Harvard and then returned home to New York to train at Terry Schreiber Studios and continue his work on LA stages, notably in Romeo & Juliet, The Trojan Women, and Neil Labute's This Is How It Goes.
