When it was first published in 1952, Ralph Ellison's masterpiece about the plight of an African-American man won the National Book Award for fiction and catapulted him into literary stardom. It has been translated into more than 15 languages. INVISIBLE MAN tells of a nameless protagonist's epic journey from the painful paradoxes of a white-run Southern Black college to Harlem, from a brush with token membership in the Communist Party to a toxic Long Island paint plant, and finally to the anonymity of the basement of an abandoned building, where he goes mad. Even before his descent into madness he feels as invisible to those whom he encounters on the streets as he later is in his self-imposed exile. THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY heralded INVISIBLE MAN as "a work of extraordinary intensity ... written with a savage, wryly humorous gusto."
