Ralph Ellison in Progress

January 26, 2011

  • News Image

Adam Bradley B.A. ’96 surveys the expansive geography of Ellison’s unfinished second novel while revisiting the more familiar, but often misunderstood, territory of Invisible Man. He works from the premise that understanding Ellison’s process of composition imparts important truths not only about the author himself but about race, writing, and American identity.

Yale University Press, 2010. 256 pages. $18.
