Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Henry Dumas] had completed work, the quality and quantity of which are almost never achieved in several lifetimes. …He was brilliant. He was magnetic and he was an incredible artist….[Dumas] was able to penetrate, almost like an archeologist, those areas that comprise the extraordinary, varied experiences of black people of all ages. I don’t know too many young men or young people who could write about old people the way he does, or write about love the way he does, or write about very young black boys the way he does. It’s extraordinary.”—Toni Morrison, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times -- Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
HENRY DUMAS, He has been called "an absolute genius" by Toni Morrison, who as a commissioning editor at Random House published collections both of his poetry, Play Ebony, Play Ivory, and his short stories, Ark of Bones. ECHO TREE, is a wonderful, masterful African American synthesis of myth and religion, culture and nature, mask and identity. From the Deep South to the simmering streets of Harlem, his characters embark on surreal and mythic quests armed only with wit, words, and wisdom. Championed by Walter Mosley, and Quincy Troupe, -Dumas’s books have long been out of print. All of his short fiction is collected here, for the first time, and includes several previously unpublished stories.
A must of universal literature ....
