Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

These three volumes have been redesigned and reissued to commemorate the first anniversary of Ellison's death.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

A new book by the author of Invisible Man is always a welcome event. Like Ellison's Shadow and Act , this collection of essays, addresses, and reviews deals with topics in literature, music, and race relations. "Remembering Richard Wright," "Homage to Duke Ellington on His Birthday," and "What America Would Be Like Without the Blacks" are among the essays included. While most of these essays have appeared previously, reprinting them here is nevertheless useful. When read together, they resonate off one another, reinforcing Ellison's emphasis on what blacks and whites share rather than on their differences. Throughout, Ellison tries to view American culture as a cloth of one piece. His analysis of the growth of that culture, and of the dynamic interaction of the diverse elements within it, is perceptive and convincing. Highly recommended. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll.

I loved Invisible Man. I probably read it 3 times. This was recommended and for the life if me I couldn't figure out why. A couple of essays were pretty good but don't buy this book because of one or two essays.

More About the Author

Ralph Ellison (1914-94) was born in Oklahoma and trained as a musician at Tuskegee Institute from 1933 to 1936, at which time a visit to New York and a meeting with Richard Wright led to his first attempts at fiction. Invisible Man won the National Book Award. Appointed to the Academy of American Arts and Letters in 1964, Ellison taught at several institutions, including Bard College, the University of Chicago, and New York University, where he was Albert Schweitzer Professor of Humanities.
