If He Hollers Let Him Go: A Novel (Himes, Chester)

Chester Himes


This tale of a guy residing each day in worry of his lifestyles for easily being black is as robust this present day because it was once while it was once first released in 1947. the unconventional occurs within the house of 4 days within the lifetime of Bob Jones, a black guy who's consistently laid low with the consequences of racism. dwelling in a society that's sopping wet in race awareness has doubtless taken a toll at the manner Jones behaves, thinks, and feels, in particular whilst, on the finish of his tale, he's accused of a brutal crime he didn't devote. "One of an important American writers of the 20th century ... [a] quirky American genius..."—Walter Mosley, writer of undesirable Boy Brawly Brown, satan in a Blue gown "If He Hollers is an austere and centred research of black event, set in southern California within the early forties."—Independent Publisher
