Richard Wright: A Biography
Literary Greats Series
In 1947 Richard Wright had written two best-selling books - Native Son and Black Boy. Like other African Americans, however, the most famous black author in the country faced daily discrimination and hostility because of his race. This fascinating biography traces the journey of one of America's most influential writers from his impoverished childhood in Mississippi to literary acclaim and success - and his ultimate decision to leave his native country.
