James Weldon Johnson's landmark novel is an emotionally gripping and poignant look into race relations. The protagonist, a half-white half-black man of very light complexion, known only as an ex-colored man, makes a choice between his heritage and the art that he loves and the ability to escape the inherent racism that he faces by passing as a white. Because of his knowledge of both cultures he is able to give us startling revaluations into both cultures. A Thrifty Book is a well designed, easy to read book at an unbeatable price.Biographie de l'auteur :
Charles Johnson is the acclaimed author of several story collections and novels including Middle Passage, for which he won the National Book Award.
