Dust Tracks on a Road: An Autobiography (Harper Perennial Modern Classics)

Zora Neale Hurston


“Warm, witty, creative. . . . this can be a wealthy and profitable book.”—The New Yorker

Dust Tracks on a street is the daring, poignant, and humorous autobiography of novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, one in all American literature’s so much compelling and influential authors. Hurston’s strong novels of the South—including Jonah’s Gourd Vine and, such a lot famously, Their Eyes have been gazing God—continue to enthrall readers with their lyrical grace, sharp aspect, and pleasing emotionality. First released in 1942, Dust Tracks on a street is Hurston’s own tale, informed in her personal phrases. The Perennial sleek Classics Deluxe version contains an all-new ahead by way of Maya Angelou, a longer biography via Valerie Boyd, and a unique P.S. part that includes the modern studies that greeted the book’s unique publication.
