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

Here, in these powerful stories, Richard Wright takes readers into this landscape once again.

Each of the eight stories 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." These poignant, gripping stories will captivate all those who loved Black Boy and Native Son.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“All eight men and all eight stories stand as beautifully, pitifully, terribly true . . . All the way through this is fine, sound, good, honorable writing rich with insight and understanding, even when occasionally twisted by sorrow.” - New York Times
