Product details 608 pages Vintage Books USA - English 9780679732761 Reviews:
"Review" by , "With this book the author maps a course from the underground world into the light. Invisible Man belongs on the shelf with the classical efforts man has made to chart the river Lethe from its mouth to its source."
"Review" by , "The Negro American experience...is indispensable to any profoundly American depiction of reality...This background provides the black writer with much to write about. As fictional material it rivals that of the nineteenth-century Russians."
"Review" by , "A book of the very first order, a superb book."
"Review" by , "Unquestionably, Ellison's book is a work of extraordinary intensity — powerfully imagined and written with a savage, wryly humorous gusto."
"Review" by , "Ralph Ellison's novel Invisible Man, a work often cited as the American novel of its time."
"Review" by , "Invisible Man is an essential book, whether read as an intriguing coming-of-age story, an incisive portrait of an individual's quest for identity, or a powerful indictment of the absurdity of racism that remains fresh and relevant today. Ellison's stylish prose speaks to the individual and collective need to acquire self-knowledge, self-definition, self-illumination?to become visible to ourselves."
