Written between 1937 and 1954 and now available in paperback for the first time, these thirteen stories are a potent distillation of the genius of Ralph Ellison. Six of them remained unpublished during Ellisons lifetime and were discovered among the authors effects in a folder labeled Early Stories. But they all bear the hallmarks--the thematic reach, musically layered voices, and sheer ebullience--that Ellison would bring to his classicInvisible Man. The tales inFlying Homerange in setting from the Jim Crow South to a Harlem bingo parlor, from the hobo jungles of the Great Depression to Wales during the Second World War. By turns lyrical, scathing, touching, and transcendently wise,Flying Home and Other Storiesis a historic volume, an extravagant last bequest from a giant of our literature.
