Review:

Short stories gathered from past collections and a few recovered pieces that Hughes himself had discarded make up this latest tribute to the accomplished writer, poet, and novelist of the Harlem revival. As in past collections, The Ways of White Folks (1934), Laughing to Keep From Crying (1952) and Something in Common and Other Stories (1963), Hughes portrays the urban dwellers--the cooks, panhandlers, night-club entertainers, fortunetellers--who live marginal existences in sparsely furnished rented rooms. Though he was a poet sensitive to language, he wrote with deliberate plainness, even roughness, and frequently quoted from spirituals and the blues.
