First Vintage Books paperback printing with rare cover! 

Book is in very good condition.   Cover has some chipping to edges and some general shelf wear.   Excellent vintage reading copy;  tight binding and nice evenly tanned pages. 

As he journeys from the Deep South to the streets and basements of Harlem, from a horrifying "battle royal" where black men are reduced to fighting animals, to a Communist rally where they are elevated to the status of trophies, Ralph Ellison's nameless protagonist ushers readers into a parallel universe that throws our own into harsh and even hilarious relief. Suspenseful and sardonic, narrated in a voice that takes in the symphonic range of the American language, black and white, Invisible Man is one of the most audacious and dazzling novels of our century.
