SIGNED First Edition Presentation copy of Hughes' Simple Takes a Wife, the breakthrough second title in Hughes' acclaimed "Simple" series, "The most famous character in black fiction." Inscribed by Langston Hughes to a close friend and longtime Cleveland NAACP member, Irene Liggins. Ralph Ellison praised Simple Takes a Wife as "a vivid picture of Negro life and its richness." and the New York Times, upon publication declared it "a superior achievement to the first of the series, Simple Speaks His Mind" (1950).
