A Father's Law (P.S.) by Richard Wright
A Father's Law (P.S.)

Jesmeg, August 15, 2008

Wright's novel is an existential exploration in the form of a typical crime thriller. As with his other excellent works, Wright deals with racial concerns and meditates on the true nature of existance and morality. The reader must keep in mind, however, that this text is a first draft, which means stylistic and continuity errors that must be overlooked, and a somewhat stilted dialogue that can be difficult to wade through at times. It is far from being a polished work of fiction, but the basic story and underlying themes are certainly representative of the great Richard Wright.
