This landmark gathering of Zora Neale Hurston's short fiction--most of which appeared only in literary magazines during her lifetime and some of which has never before been published--reveals the evolution of one of the most important African-American writers. Spanning her career from 1921 to 1955, these stories attest to Hurston's tremendous range and establish themes that recur in her longer fiction. The stories in this collection map, in rich language and imagery, Hurston's development and concerns as a writer and provide an invaluable reflection of the mind and imagination of the author of the acclaimed novel Their Eyes Were Watching God.
