Review quote

Praise for the original edition of Holiday: "As a work of art this book has few peers. As a real book, with a sincere motive, it is hardly to be approached." -- San Francisco Bulletin Praise for this edition: "Holiday offers a lively introduction to one of America's most important forgotten authors. As Kathleen Pfeiffer's introduction suggests, Frank's novel also sheds needed light on one of the greatest mysteries of the Harlem Renaissance: the genesis of Jean Toomer's classic Cane." -- William J. Maxwell, author of New Negro, Old Left and editor of Claude McKay's Complete Poemsshow more
