Praise
"One of the masterpieces of black fiction."
"[The book] remains a powerful, uncompromising work of social criticism."
"A classic of American realism and one of the most evocative stories ever."
"Overflows with the classic pity and terror of good imaginative writing."
"Once again a standing ovation is due for this American classic."
From the Publisher
Annotation Set in Harlem in 1940, this is the classic tale of a young black woman's struggle to keep her son clear of the violence and poverty of their neighborhood.
Editors Note As much a historical document as it is a novel, this 1946 winner of the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship is the poignant and unblinkingly honest story of a young black woman's struggle to live and raise her son by herself amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s.
Editors Note 2 THE STREET tells the poignant, often heartbreaking story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to raise her son amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s. Originally published in 1946 and hailed by critics as a masterwork, The Street was Ann Petry's first novel, a beloved bestseller with more than a million copies in print. Its haunting tale still resonates today.
