About this title

Synopsis:

A newly discovered, previously unpublished novella by the late author of Native Son details the disruption in Johnny Gibbs's life upon discovering he is a foster child, when, in rebellion, he joins a Harlem street gang, thereby abandoning his childhood.

About the Author:

Richard Wright won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his books, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation. He died in 1960.
