What People are Saying About This

Gene Jarrett

What Was African American Literature? is undoubtedly one of the most provocative books on the texts and criticism of African American literature to appear within the past several years. The sophistication and range of its arguments further cement Warren's stature as one of the leading thinkers of our time.
Gene Jarrett, Boston University
