Porgy by Du Bose Heyward

This vintage book contains DuBose Heyward's 1925 novel, 'Porgy'. It is the tale of a crippled street-urchin living in the black tenements of Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1920s. Porgy was based on a real-life resident of Charleston, Samuel Smalls. This novel constitutes a must-read for fans and collectors of Hayward's seminal work, and it would make for a great addition to any personal library. Edwin DuBose Heyward (1885 – 1940) was an American writer best remembered for his writing this novel, which was adapted for the stage by his wife in 1927. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

A great story! The author brings to life the black community of South Carolina of the early 20th century. A classic that finally is being rediscovered.
