Description

Langston Hughes was one of the best-known poets in modern America and his first novel, "Not Without Laughter," is undoubtedly his finest prose. A classic of African-American literature, it is the poignant story of a young black boy's awakening to the sad and the beautiful realities of black life in a small Kansas town. Published in 1930, "Not Without Laughter" is a pioneering work of fiction, and has been in print ever since. This work is now available in trade paperback with a new introduction by best-selling author and poet Maya Anagelou and a foreword by writer Arna Bontemps.
