This is one of Wright's neglected texts, which is really a shame because it's a wonderfully rich read. I read it for a Black and Brown Existentialisms class and it was fantastic viewed through that lens.

I understand why literary critics aren't too fond of "The Outsider." Sure the brooding may be excessive and some scenes are a bit melodramatic. But I don't care. Cross Damon's story is far more gripping than Bigger Thomas's, and Wright's analysis of the dualism between Communism and Fascism is brilliant. I honestly don't know of a writer with a more eloquent use of the English language. I look forward to my second read of this novel in which, I'm certain, more insights will be revealed to me.

It must be documented that Richard Wright was a great writer. However, after reading some of his other works, this is all the way to the left. I wonder if parts of this book was autobiographical. The first thing to notice about this work is the length of the novel. It is soooooo long and filled with way too much philosophical ideas. I feel like winning the gold medal after completing the read of this work. Cross Damon is one intelligent man who is so confused and sick in many ways. His downfall is women and his protection of his race. The writer paints a stereotype that too many black men thirst for sex is undeniable. I am not happy about that analogy. Cross was a confused man who disposed those who got in his way. . I wonder if Mr. Wright attempt in writing such a different novel was his way of showing the world is talent does not lie in one dimension?

I'll keep this brief. If you are reading this review, you are already a Richard Wright fan.
And if you are of a certain age, you probably first read this as a Penguin Classic paperback in the sixties, and loved it!
Little did we know that it was so wonderful in spite of having major portions of it hacked off by the editor.
This is the full and complete version as written by Mr. Wright, himself. It is truly a historical printing that expands on some of the most important character development, and back-story of critical events in the previous abridged editions.
Additionally the price was only $3.90 for a "Brand New", very high quality softcover edition with beautiful photographic art, and a tasteful matte finish suitable for coffee table duty.
You cannot lose on this purchase!!

Richard Wright is intelligent, consciuos of the plight of the disenfranchised, and juxtaposes Cross Damon with the American denials of the People of Color.

Should be mandatory reading for College level but those who did not live through the Communist era in American History may find the book a bit confusing. It also becomes a bit preachy toward the end. BUT in spite of these minor flaws the brilliant insight into the nature of man and society and the story from a black but more importantly human perspective makes the book a must on a reading list. especially for anyone of color. I state this as an old white man.
Excellent copy. Satisfied customer. Will patronize again!
