Author: Claude McKay, Wayne F. Cooper
Publisher: Northeastern University Press
Release Date: November 30, 1987
With sensual, often brutal accuracy, Claude McKay traces the parallel paths of two very different young men struggling to find their way through the suspicion and prejudice of American society. At the same time, this stark but moving story touches on the central themes of the Harlem Renaissance, including the urgent need for unity and identity among blacks.
