About This Item

New York: Random House, 1952. Third printing. Hardcover. One of the best book of the 20th century. A powerful debut novel from this important African American writer. A clean and tight very near fine copy in two two cloth binding with the white lettering on the spine bright and with none of the usual flaking. No dust jacket. A fresh copy of this classic.

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.
