The Outsider is Richard Wright's compelling story of a black man's attempt to escape his past.

About the Author

Richard Wright won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his novels, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation. He died in 1960.

the outsider is a novel filled with suspense and politics. The Outsider by Richard Wright is probably the best book i have ever read. The characters and problems that go on throughout the novel can be connected to everyday people. All together a very good novel.
