Hue and Cry: Stories
James Alan Mcpherson
Publisher: Harper PerennialFormat: Paperback
“Hue and Cry” is the remarkably mature and agile debut story collection from James Alan McPherson, one of America's most venerated, most original writers. McPherson's characters — gritty, jazzy, authentic, and pristinely rendered — give voice to unheard struggles along the dividing lines of race and poverty in subtle, fluid prose that bears no trace of sentimentality, agenda, or apology.First published in 1968, this collection includes the Atlantic Prize-winning story “Gold Coast” (selected by John Updike for the collection “Best American Short Stories of the Century”) and introduced America to McPherson's unforgettable, enduring vision and distinctive artistry.
