A review of this — 3 years ago
Richard Wright is famous for his novel, Native Son, which is a classic of American realism, made it to the Modern Libraryâ€™s list of Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century, and was the first Book of the Month Club title by an African-American author. His autobiography â€“ at least part of it â€“ is an acclaimed account of life in the Jim Crow South.
Only the first part of Richard Wrightâ€™s autobiography, Black Boy, was published contemporaneously with his finishing it in 1945. The second part, American Hunger, was not published until 1977.
Understandably. . . .
