Description

Invisible Man is a milestone in American literature, a book that has continued to engage readers since its appearance in 1952. A first novel by an unknown writer, it remained on the bestseller list for sixteen weeks, won the National Book Award for fiction, and established Ralph Ellison as one of the key writers of the century. The nameless narrator of the novel describes growing up in a black community in the South, attending a Negro college from which he is expelled, moving to New York and becoming the chief spokesman of the Harlem branch of "the Brotherhood", and retreating amid violence and confusion to the basement lair of the Invisible Man he imagines himself to be. The book is a passionate and witty tour de force of style, strongly influenced by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Joyce, and Dostoevsky.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 13, 1995 – These three volumes have been redesigned and reissued to commemorate the first anniversary of Ellison's death.

Greatest book

There is nothing to say but that this book totally changed my life. Many are afraid to read it because of its life-changing quality but that is why you should read it. It's about finding yourself a lot more than it is about race.

Loved all the way through

Though a drag in the beginning this novel is a reflection of all human's desire to be a part of something. As it picks speed readers might want the "whiny" protagonist to just conform and let things be, but he can't and that's his flaw. We all try to be different but in the end what will we be remembered by or will we be remembered at all.
Take this out from ur local library instead of buying it. The frustration of knowin the main character is u will make u regret buying it.

Inspiring Book!!!

I read this book about 10 years ago,and this book tells about a person that want to be part of something.The people that's in the group is basically using him,and he's not taking notice,that they are using him,until the end.
