Synopsis

Even though Ralph Ellison's novel Invisible Man is sometimes featured on banned books lists, it remains a consistent staple on many high school reading curriculums. In the novel, Ellison laments the feeling of hopelessness and invisibility that many Black men experience in the United States, and it elegantly explores the themes of racism and bigotry in ways that are both unsettling and accessible.

About Labor of Leaves

Like some of the best love stories, my relationship with books began as a slow burn and developed into a wild passion. From reading to studying to teaching, my entire life has revolved around books in one way or another. The exhilaration of a new release, the smell of a vintage leather binding, the joy of connecting people to books that matter to them: all these things have led me to this path, and this path leads this book to you.
