Product description

Review

One of the most important American novels of the twentieth century (Times)

A brilliant individual victory . . . proving that a truly heroic quality can exist among our contemporaries (Saul Bellow)

A stunning block-buster of a book that will floor and flabbergast some people, bedevil and intrigue others, and keep everybody reading right through to its explosive end (Langston Hughes)

Don't try to write the Great American Novel, it has already been done . . . any US epic must address race, which remains the greatest single issue the country faces. (Paul Gambaccini The Week)

Synopsis

Ellison's blistering and impassioned first novel, winner of the prestigious American National Book Award, tells the extraordinary story of a man who is invisible 'simply because people refuse to see me'. Yet his powerfully depicted adventures - from a terrifying Harlem race riot to his expulsion from a Southern college - go far beyond the story of one man. The lives of countless millions are evoked in this superb portrait of a generation of black Americans.
