Lawd Today! | Uncle Tom’s Children | Native Son | Black Boy (American Hunger) | The Outsider
Edited by Arnold Rampersad

Now in a boxed set, the definitive edition of Richard Wright’s landmark works in the form in which he intended them to be read.

“With the appearance of the two-volume Richard Wright: Works, published by The Library of America and edited and annotated by Arnold Rampersad, we have a new opportunity to assess Wright’s formidable and lasting contribution to American literature. But this time we have texts intended as the author originally wished them to be read. The works that millions know are, as it turns out, expurged and abbreviated versions of what Wright submitted for publication.” — Charles Johnson, The Chicago Tribune
