Flying Home: and Other Stories

Vintage, January 1998. Trade Paperback. Item #480
ISBN: 0679776613


Written between 1937 and 1954 and collected here for the first time, "Flying Home and Other Stories" represents the best of Invisible Man author Ralph Ellison's short fiction. There are 13 pieces, six of which were never published in Ellison's lifetime. Ellison draws on his early experiences - his father's death when he was three; hoboing his way on a freight train to Tuskegee Institute to follow his early dreams of becoming a musician - to create stories that, according to "The Washington Post," "approach the simple elegance of Chekhov."
