Invisible Man

  • Novel 1952
Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, widely regarded as a masterpiece of the twentieth century, remains just as relevant seventy years later. The novel tells the sometimes absurd story of a young African-American man whose search for identity results in the conclusion that he is invisible to white society.
