Right from the start, Bigger Thomas had been headed for jail. It could have
been for assault or petty larceny; by chance, it was for murder and rape.
Native Son tells the story of this young black man caught in a downward
spiral after he kills a young white woman in a brief moment of panic. Set in
Chicago in the 1930s, Richard Wright's novel is just as powerful today as
when it was written -- in its reflection of poverty and hopelessness, and what it means to be black in America.
This abridged edition includes an introduction, -How Bigger Was Born, - by
the author, as well as an afterword by John Reilly.
The story of a young black man caught in a downward spiral after he kills a
