KIRKUS REVIEW

In the rich, colloqulal idion and rhythm of his people; one of the foremost Negro poets contributes some lyric poetry. Blues, ballads and mammy songs, with much of the spiritual quality, melody and color, songs of love and lack of it, of melancholy, of loneliness, from Harlem to Texas. Predictable market.
