Description: Juneteenth is the culmination of Ellison's lifelong dream of putting into a novel "the rich Babel of idiomatic expression around me, a language full of imagery and gesture and rhetorical canniness". Here is Ellison, the master of American vernacular -- the preacher's hyperbole and the politician's, the rhythms of jazz and gospel and ordinary speech -- at the height of his powers, telling a powerful, evocative tale of a prodigal of the twentieth century.

"Tell me what happened while there's still time", demands the dying Senator Adam Sunraider to the Reverend A. Z. Hickman, the itinerant Negro preacher who he calls Daddy Hickman. As a young man, Sunraider was Bliss, an orphan taken in by Hickman and raised to be preacher like himself. His history, pieced together in his own memories and the memories induced by Hickman, encompasses camp meetings where he became the risen Lazarus to inspire the faithful; the more ordinary joys of young southern boyhood; bucolic days as a filmmaker, lovemaking with a young woman in a field in the Oklahoma sun. And behind it all lies a mystery, how did this chosen child become the man who would deny everything to achieve his goals. Brilliantly crafted, moving, wise, Juneteenth is an American master's abiding testament to the country he so loved, and to its many unfinished tasks.
