What People are Saying About This

Winston Napier

In focusing on the latter half of the twentieth century, this release of The Columbia Guide to Contemporary African American Fiction is unique in its sustained attention to writers and topics often inadequately represented or simply overlooked in guides intent on covering the entire span of African American literary history. The result is an impressive reference tool that is especially rich in its coverage of black postmodern literary culture.
