About the Book

“[Wright’s] landscape was not merely that of the Deep South, or of Chicago, but that of the world, of the human heart.” James Baldwin

In these powerful stories, literary giant Richard Wright probes the landscape of the human heart and soul with deep compassion and biting clarity.

Each of the short works in Eight Men focuses on a Black man at violent odds with a white world, reflecting Wright's views about racism in our society and his fascination with what he called "the struggle of the individual in America." Wrenching and indelible, these stories will captivate all those who loved Black Boy and Native Son.

Critical Praise

“All eight men and all eight stories stand as beautifully, pitifully, terribly true. . . . Rich with insight and understanding, even when occasionally twisted by sorrow.” — New York Times

"Haunting. . . . A powerful and disturbing book." — Kirkus Reviews
