The definitive biography of the groundbreaking African American author who had an extraordinary legacy on black writers globally.... The definitive biography of the groundbreaking African-American author who had an extraordinary legacy on black writers globally. In this biography of Chester B. Himes (1909-1984), Lawrence p. Jackson depicts the improbable life of the controversial writer whose novels confront sexuality, racism, and social injustice. In absorbing detail, Jackson explores Chester Himes´s middle-class origins, eight years in prison, painful odyssey as a black World War II-era artist, and escape to Europe, where Himes became internationally famous for his Harlem detective series. Praised by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. as ´´one of the towering figures of the black literary tradition´´, Himes, author of the best sellers If He Hollers, Let Him Go and Cotton Comes to Harlem, published 20 literary works over a long career, enhanced by friendships with Ralph Ellison, Richard Wright, and Carl Van Vechtern. Chester B. Himes relies on exclusive interviews and unrestricted access to Himes´s full archives. Jackson restores the legacy of a fascinating maverick determined to etch disturbing portraits of American urban life that remain vivid and contemporary. 1. Language: English.
