Remember Me to Harlem by Langston Hughes

Book Description

Langston Hughes is widely remembered as a celebrated star of the Harlem Renaissance -- a writer whose bluesy, lyrical poems and novels still have broad appeal. What's less well known about Hughes is that for much of his life he maintained a friendship with Carl Van Vechten, a flamboyant white critic, writer, and photographer whose ardent support of black artists was peerless.Despite their differences Van Vechten was forty-four to Hughes twenty-two when they met Hughes and Van Vechten s shared interest in black culture lead to a deeply-felt, if unconventional friendship that would span some forty years. Between them they knew everyone from Zora Neale Hurston to Richard Wright, and their letters, lovingly and expertly collected here for the first time, are filled with gossip about the antics of the great and the forgotten, as well as with talk that ranged from race relations to blues lyrics to the nightspots of Harlem, which they both loved to prowl. It s a correspondence that, as Emily Bernard notes in her introduction, provides an unusual record of entertainment, politics, and culture as seen through the eyes of two fascinating and irreverent men."
