By the time of her death thirty years ago, at the tragically young age of thirty-four, Lorraine Hansberry had created two electrifying masterpieces of the American theater. With A Raisin in the Sun, Hansberry gave this country its most movingly authentic portrayal of black family life in the inner city. Barely five years later, with The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window, Hansberry gave us an unforgettable portrait of a man struggling with his individual fate in an age of racial and social injustice. These two plays remain milestones in the American theater, remarkable not only for their historical value but for their continued ability to engage the imagination and the heart. With an Introduction by Robert Nemiroff

Review: A Raisin in the Sun and The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window

User Review  - Goodreads

I have only read A Raisin in the Sun, not The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window. I didn't like A Raisin in the Sun. It didn't have much plot. It wasn't interesting. It was short, which was nice. I probably wouldn't recommend this book. Read full review
