Read full description of the books Lawd Today!:Like the rest of Wright's work, his first novel was originally published as an editorially laundered version of the book he actually wrote. Now authoritative new texts, based on Wright's original typescripts, reveal the full range and power of his experimental style. The text for this first fully unexpurgated edition of the novel reinstates his stylistic experiments, and the reader encounters a far livelier work of the imagination.
Written before Native Son, but originally published several years after Wright's death, Lawd Today! interweaves news bulletins, songs, exuberant wordplay, and scenes of confrontation and celebration into a kaleidoscopic chronicle of one day in the life of a black Chicago postal clerk during the Depression.
