Black Boy - Richard Wright
A couple years ago I was bowled over by Native Son, and I'm glad I finally got the chance to read this classic American (and classic African-American) autobiography. Once again, the excellent writing flows effortlessly even when the story itself is troubling. To be honest, the first part of the book was more interesting overall, as the second half gets more into the author's time with the communist party, and that is a bit dry relative to the stories of the author's childhood. Another great classic read. Recommended.
