Chicago seemed an unreal city whose mythical houses were built of slabs of black coal wreathed in palls of gray smoke, houses whose foundations were sinking slowly into the dank prairie.

Chicago seemed an unreal city whose mythical houses were built of slabs of black coal wreathed in palls of gray smoke, houses whose foundations were sinking slowly into the dank prairie team showed intermittently on the wise horizon, gleaming translucently in the winter sun. The din of the city entered my consciousness, entered to remain for years to come. What would happen to me here? Would I survive? My expectations were modest. I wanted only a job. Hunger had long been my daily companion

Jambo. Contrary to what "A Customer" has posted in review, Richard Wright does not ignore race and the "black" aspect in his writings of BLACK Boy and American Hunger. He simply does not focus on such adjectives that suggest a "black struggle" in excess. Race is a part of Wright's life and those in his works whether some of you like or accept that is irrelevant. Ignoring the mentioning of race to mechanically gain proper recognition from others is a cheat. Identifying race as a component of a person's or story's description should not make people view it with any less accuracy or relevance. If people can't do that, then they need to not be so mentally weak. You can not play a race card if none are dealt, or better yet, not in the deck to begin with. This book can interest and educate anyone, but the "Black-Experience" side should be noticed and greatly appreciated by those of you considered or self-considered to be Black. If there is problem with terms like black and white, it should be the English use of black for things bad and white for things good and connotations of these ideas being tossed into the use of black and white for race. Quality of this book for the price is great. Though, if you have not read the book preceding this sequel, you'll find the kindle price much higher for that one. Typical tactics escape not Amazon. Enjoy the reading. Oh, if you haven't read Wright's classic, Native Son, read it. Od'abo!

Intelligently and eloquently written story of a most difficult and tragic time in American history for Black folks. Very interesting period when some "Negroes" sought acceptance and validation in the Communist party. Can't believe that I'm just now reading this book after all these decades when it was first written.

Excellent book. Race in the early 1900s was a painful situation, and Richard Wright's burning intellect and tremendous grace gives us a look into his world.

Although I am only through the first two chapters I always wondered what happened to that little boy that burned his grandmother's house in the opening chapter of Black Boy.

Parts of the book were interesting. I thought it dragged out at times. It did hold my interest till the end, but not as easy reading as I like.
I love reading works by Richard Wright . His voice is so powerful and poignant. I truly appreciate his gift.
