Book Overview
A collection of vibrant and incisive short stories depicting the sometimes humorous, but more often tragic interactions between Black people and white people in America in the 1920s and '30s. One of the most important writers to emerge from the Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes is best known as a poet, but these stories showcase his talent as a lively storyteller. His work blends elements of blues and jazz, speech and song, into a triumphant and wholly original idiom. Stories included in this collection: Cora Unashamed Slave on the Block Home Passing A Good Job Gone Rejuvenation Through Joy The Blues I'm Playing Red-Headed Baby Poor Little Black Fellow Little Dog Berry Mother and Child One Christmas Eve Father and Son
