In the powerful tradition of Native Son, Richard Wright's last novel is a stirring story of racial prejudice in the South.
From the Publisher"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 Tribune
