Comments

75th Anniversary edition of Ellison's first novel, which he began writing while serving in the Merchant Marines during WWII. "The story begins with a terrifying odyssey of one man's search for his own identity through his high school days to the campus of a Southern Negro college and then to New York's Harlem" (Blockson 86). Winner of the National Book Award in 1953, and cited in The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels list (#19), Invisible Man remains one of the 20th century's most enduring works on the Black experience in America.
