Richard Wright: Later Works

Black Boy (American Hunger) | The Outsider
Edited by Arnold Rampersad

“Edited by Arnold Rampersad, a professor of English at Princeton, this superb edition of Wright’s major works and some minor ones restores the second part of Black Boy and cuts in Native Son demanded by the book club in 1939. It also includes a chronology so complete that it reads like a biography in miniature as well as unusually explicit notes on the differences between Wright and the publishing world 50 years ago.”— Alfred Kazin, The New York Times
