Overview

A splendidly researched & written book. The most sophisticated study of black narrative published to date. Offers a persuasive historiographical argument, asserting that the tradition is both male & female with numerous points of contact between the two. The tradition embraces both storywriting & storytelling. While Afro-American literary texts must be discussed as works of art, there is a way to examine their dual concern with art & politics. Consists of a series of richly illustrated & deftly argued interpretations of 20th century African-American prose texts.
