Black Boy by Richard Wright
Black Boy; Black Boy is not a pretty book; nor is it sensational in any vulgar money-catching way. In some ways it is difficult to understand, because his attitudes are sometimes quite unpredictable and even surprising. One last word: Black Boy can be read in two ways: as the tragic and harrowing story of a young Negro growing up in a difficult and treacherous world; or, more generally, it can be read simply as a story about growing up.
