Synopsis

If He Hollers Let Him Go is the first novel by Chester Himes, published in 1945. It is about an African American shipyard worker in Los Angeles during World War II. A 1968 film adaptation with Raymond St. Jacques, Barbara McNair, Kevin McCarthy, and Arthur O'Connell bore little resemblance to the book. The story spans four days in the life of Bob Jones, a newcomer to L.A. from Ohio, who has some college education and works as a crew leader in a naval shipyard. It is considered a protest novel, in the same vein as Richard Wright's book  Native Son,  published 5 years earlier.
