Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have been for assault orpetty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape. Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Set in Chicago in the 1930s, Wright's powerful novel is an unsparing reflection on the poverty and feelings of hopelessness experienced by people in inner cities across the country and of what it means to be black in America. "This new edition gives us a Native Son in which the key line in the key scene is restored to the great good fortune of American letters. The scene as we now have it is central both to an ongoing conversation among African-American writers and critics and to the consciousness among all American readers of what it means to live in a multi-racial society in which power splits along racial lines."-Los Angeles Times--New York Herald TribuneBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Richard WrightPublisher: Harper PerennialPublished: 04/29/2008ISBN: 9780061148507Pages: 504Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.60w x 1.60d
