Description


First published in 1942 at the height of her popularity, Dust Tracks on a Road is Zora Neale Hurstons candid, funny, bold, and poignant autobiography, an imaginative and exuberant account of her rise from childhood poverty in the rural South to a prominent place among the leading artists and intellectuals of the Harlem Renaissance. As compelling as her acclaimed fiction, Hurstons very personal literary self-portrait offers a revealing, often audacious glimpse into the lifepublic and privateof an extraordinary artist, anthropologist, chronicler, and champion of the Black experience in America. Full of the wit and wisdom of a proud, spirited woman who started off low and climbed high, Dust Tracks on a Road is a rare treasure from one of literatures most cherished voices.
