Item Description: New York: Thunder's Mouth Press, (1986), 1986. First thus- a trade paperback. Reissue of Himes' first novel, originally published in 1947, and set in Los Angeles during World War II at a time when there was a significant influx of African Americans there to work in the defense industry - "The novel takes place over four days in the life of Bob Jones, the only black foreman in a shipyard during World War II. Jones lives in a society literally drenched in race consciousness--. . . A slight mistake, an unwitting rebellion, an unintentional expression of rage or desire can spell disaster for a black man--a beating over a game of craps, or an arrest, or termination from a job, or an accusation of rape. Jones awakes each day in fear, and lives steeped in fear." Despite this, Bob Jones is a survivor. New foreword for this edition by Graham Hodges. ix, 203 pp. Fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
