KIRKUS REVIEW

Jamaican-born and a leading figure of the Harlem Renaissance, McKay (1889-1948), like other hitherto neglected black writers of the period (Jean Toomer, for instance), is now beginning to receive scholarly attention. This collection -- essential for black literature specialists -- contains both previously published (many hard to obtain) and unpublished works, including memoirs and letters.
