RALPH ELLISON.

Praise for
Ralph Ellison
Emergence of Genius

" Dr. Lawrence Jackson’ s remarkable biography of Ralph Ellison is an essential contribution to the scholarship on one of the twentieth century’ s greatest writers. Painstakingly researched and exhaustive, this compelling portrait of Ellison clarifies his genius– – and his intellectual era– – for a new century." – – Charles Johnson, National Book Award Winner and author of Middle Passage

" Lawrence Jackson’ s absorbing biography of Ralph Ellison makes a vital contribution to American literary history." – – Ross Posnock, English Department, New York University, Author of Color and Culture: Black Writers and the Making of the Modern Intellectual

" Professor Lawrence Jackson’ s painstaking documentation of Ralph Ellison’ s early life and the beginn literary career provides a much needed resource for Ellison’ s readers and critics." – – Horace Porter, author of Jazz Country: Ralph Ellison in America and Director of African Studies at the University of Iowa

" An eloquently written and exquisitely researched biography. There is nothing quite like it. Jackson breathes life into those hidden nooks and crannies of Ellison’ s youth that would later become cannon fodder for the grown Ellison’ s explorations. An utterly groundbreaking biography, the idea of Ralph Ellison will never be the same." – – Jerry Watts, author of Heroism and the Black Intellectual: Ralph Ellison, Politics, and Afro-AmericanIntellectual Life
