Review:

"There is something fascinating about watching the work of an author make its way after the author's death through the inevitable process of critical reevalution. It is now clear that Richard Wright has emerged as a significant figure in American literature. . . The record begins with a single 1933 notice in a mimeographed announcement and, year by year, lists public appearances, public statements, and critical reaction to his writing in the print media of 54 nations. The list for each year is in alphabetical order by author. The index is highly detailed. Any future biographical work on Richard Wright will find this bibliography a necessity; academic or public libraries supporting a program of black culture will find it invaluable; and it belongs in any library supporting American literature studies. Richard Wright has truly been well served."-Choice
