Review quote

"One of the best-selling novels of the Harlem Renaissance ... [this volume has been] out of print for much of the past seventy years... Van Vechten has long been a subject of fervid debate... He was committed to black achievement and creativity but also to the idea that that creativity and achievement only take certain, often racially exaggerated, forms... It seems increasingly incongruous that one of the era's most controversial texts should remain under wraps. 'We're ready now." -- Casey Greenfield, Lingua Francashow more
