A formidable and lasting contribution to American literature. –Chicago Tribune

Richard Wright’s powerful collection of novellas set in the American Deep South, now available as a limited Olive Edition from Harper Perennial.

Originally published in 1938, Uncle Tom’s Children, a collection of novellas, was the first book from Richard Wright, who would go on to win international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the Black experience. The author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, most notably the acclaimed novel Native Son and his stunning autobiography, Black Boy, Wright stands today as one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century.

Each of the powerful and devastating stories in Uncle Tom’s Children concerns an aspect of the lives of Black people in the post-slavery era, exploring their resistance to white racism and oppression. The collection also includes a personal essay by Wright titled The Ethics of Living Jim Crow.
