I have always been fascinated by Wright, both as a writer and as a social thinker. I haven't read other full biographies or examined source materials, so I can't speak specifically to the accuracy of all the information, but the tone seems balanced. (I think I read critical reviews of the book suggesting that Walker had a personal axe to grind with Wright, but this didn't come across in my reading.) Wright is portrayed as a troubled individual who persevered through a particularly difficult time in American history and didn't always take the easy road. I was particularly interested in some of the information about the way his books, particularly *Native Son*, were edited.
Different from what I expected. A very unique perspective. Gives a lot of details into Chinese culture.
It was spooky.
More dark cynicism. Yum, if you can laugh about it.
