      The book began with an explosive prologue. After reading this anthology, I was left to ponder some "What If? In the book, the people of Harlem will even steal purses out of the back of a woman's dress to get what today is considered enough money to live off of. Development[ edit ] William Horbergeventually credited as an executive producer, got the project started when he optioned the rights to Himes' novel.

      Against the backdrop of Harlem in review book Renaissance bigwigs calling for positive depictions of high-achieving Negroes, Hurston unpacked the lives of everyday black people doing everyday things. Many Harlem Renaissance writers drew from their own personal experiences. Although Hurston's work was almost lost to literary history, Alice Walker helped to resurrect an appreciation of "Their Eyes Were Watching God" and other novels. She loses him and he ends up locked out of the apartment, naked. While this one slip might have served as a "pea under my mattress" to minimize my enthusiasm for this novel, I assure you, my enjoyment and complete satisfaction with this novel remains firmly intact. Fans and scholars of Hurston's work and the uninitiated alike will find many delights in these complex, thoughtful and wickedly funny portraits of black lives and communities.

      As we mourn the recent passing of literary giants such as Toni Morrison and Paule Marshall, this book is a significant testament to the enduring resonance of black women's writing. Deke starts off saying how unfortunate the whole event was, and if he could help her in any way. This superb reissue of Harlem Renaissance brings to a new generation of readers one of the great works in African-American history and indeed a landmark work in the field of American Studies. The book began with an explosive prologue.
