Review quote

"The most persistent criticism of Langston Hughes has been that he was not a thinker, that he had no ideas to speak of ... A collection of this kind is needed to do justice to the often inspired quality of Hughes's weekly journalistic writing and to expand our sense of his interests and ideas. De Santis's is the first book to bring this material within easy reach." -- Arnold Rampersad.show more
