This 1958 work (cited in Books for College Libraries) is the fourth and last of his novels to be published in his lifetime and follows the antagonistic relationship between a rural southern black mortician, whose wealth and security depend on business "arrangements" with a corrupt white power structure, and his rebellious son.
