“Langston Hughes is a titanic figure in 20th-century American literature . . . a powerful interpreter of the American experience.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
Arguably the most important writer to emerge from the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and ‘30s, Langston Hughes was a great poet and a shrewd and lively storyteller. His work blends elements of blues and jazz, speech and song, into a triumphant and wholly original idiom.

Vintage Hughes is great. Langston himself lends so much to history through his writings. I think I live and breath him. I have read and reread this book.
Review: Vintage HughesUser Review - Vanessa Thompson - Goodreads
