About This Item

Boston. 1989. Northeastern University Press. 1st of This Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 1555530532. New Foreword by Pancho Savery. 308 pages. paperback. Cover: Michael McCurdy. FROM THE PUBLISHER - First published in 1950, this powerful novel offers a troubling view of black middle-class life during the years between the two world wars. Set against the backdrop of the South’s segregated school system, STRANGER AND ALONE follows the progress of Shelton Howden, son of a black mother and a white father, who wants more than anything else to become somebody of importance in the world. How Shelton betrays himself and his origins fuels this riveting account of the means by which cynicism and self- hatred became institutionalized in the pre—civil rights era. J. Saunders Redding was born in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1906. Until his death in 1988, he taught Afro- American culture at a number of universities, including Cornell and Brown. He is the author of several groundbreaking works of history and literary criticism, including TO MAKE A POET BLACK, THEY CAME IN CHAINS, and ON BEING A NEGRO IN AMERICA, and an autobiographical work, NO DAY OF TRIUMPH. ‘The work of a discriminating intelligence. Mr. Redding has achieved a vitalization of facts and situations which need to be known and understood by members of both races.’ - Priscilla Heath, Christian Science Monitor. inventory #33093 ISBN: 1555530532.
