4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Alex on October 29, 2000
Format: Paperback
The life of poverty and discrimination is all about Simple, the character in Simple's Uncle Sam. He goes through everything and tells about it in his short stories. From his ideas for a Negro President to his ideas for an ugly contest instead of a beauty contest, this man's mind comes alive with explicit detail, description, and opinion.

This book, containing stories written by Langston Hughes, is not as well known as some of his other "Simple" stories that were compiled from the column he wrote for the Chicago Defender. I was very pleased to be able to discover this collection, and to receive it promptly after ordering it from Amazon.com.
