Editorial Reviews

“This thoroughly researched book . . . concerns novels by W.E.B. DuBois, Arna Bontemps, Countee Cullen, Langston Hughes, and Jean Toomer. Singh first presents an excellent overview of the Twenties by combining the social, political, and cultural forces into a cohesive narrative. . . . He demonstrates a deep knowledge and understanding of this era by providing a smooth-flowing criticism of the works that have helped shape the black novel as it is known today. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal
