"Numerous recent books have treated the subject of black men, but . . . few have focused on literary criticism. . . . Essays treat such well-known figures as Ishmael Reed, John Edgar Wideman, Charles Johnson and Ernest Gaines, but the most significant pieces may be the ones on less-recognized but talented writers including Melvin Dixon, Brent Wade, and Randall Kenam. . . . This volume of cogently written articles . . . belongs in all collections of African American literature." -- Choice"The anthology considers not only a literary heritage of black male writers, but the very construction of blackness and masculinity as well. This dual-purpose makes Clark's collection one of the most useful works on black male writers to date. This collection will provide invaluable contributions to students and scholars in the fields of Literary and Cultural Studies, in addtion to Black Studies, Queer Studies, and Gender Studies." --LaMonda Horton-Stallings, The Western Journal of Black Studies"The collection of essays in Contemporary Black Men's Fiction and Drama present a varied and holistic look at the wide-ranging themes, styles, and contributions of present-day black male novelists." -- C. Liegh McInnis, Multicultural ReviewADVANCE PRAISE:"Like eruptive moments in the films of Spike Lee, the essays in Contemporary Black Men's Fiction and Drama provide compelling reasons for reconsidering how we interpret literary productions by black men. Weary deconstruction is eclipsed by bracing 'complexification.' Without doubt, these stimulating arguments will inspire fresh and rigorous inquiry about definition, identity, representation, evidence, ontology, and values. They deepen, both for literary specialists and general readers, the sense that the tradition of black men's writing is a cultural necessity rather than an arbitrary embellishment."-- Jerry W. Ward Jr., editor of Trouble the Water: 250 Years of African-American Poetry
