Ellison's blistering and impassioned first novel, winner of the prestigious American National Book Award, tells the extraordinary story of a man who is invisible 'simply because people refuse to see me'. Yet his powerfully depicted adventures - from a terrifying Harlem race riot to his expulsion from a Southern college - go far beyond the story of one man. The lives of countless millions are evoked in this superb portrait of a generation of black Americans.

Reviews

One of the most important American novels of the twentieth century * Times * A brilliant individual victory . . . proving that a truly heroic quality can exist among our contemporaries -- Saul Bellow A stunning block-buster of a book that will floor and flabbergast some people, bedevil and intrigue others, and keep everybody reading right through to its explosive end -- Langston Hughes Don't try to write the Great American Novel, it has already been done . . . any US epic must address race, which remains the greatest single issue the country faces. -- Paul Gambaccini * The Week *
