Overview

Published here for the first time is Bruce Nugent's short novel, Half High, a story about a mysterious young artist named Aeon, whose mixed racial heritage alienates him from both the Black and white worlds of 1920s New York and beyond.

A stand-alone novella that nonetheless further engages with the characters in Nugent's full-length novel Gentleman Jigger, this important work deepens our understanding of the Harlem Renaissance, Black modernism, and Black modernism's relationship to the modernist work white authors were producing at the time as well. Presented here with a short introduction by Whit Frazier, including a brief discussion of how this work came to be published.
