Simple's Uncle Sam by Langston Hughes

Book Description

Langston Hughes's most beloved character comes back to life in this extraordinary collectionLangston Hughes is best known as a poet, but he was also a prolific writer of theater, autobiography, and fiction. None of his creations won the hearts and minds of his readers as did Jesse B. Semple, better known as "Simple." Simple speaks as an Everyman for African Americans in Uncle Sam's America. With great wit, he expounds on topics as varied as women, Gospel music, and sports heroes--but always keeps one foot planted in the realm of politics and race. In recent years, readers have been able to appreciate Simple's situational humor as well as his poignant questions about social injustice in "The Best of Simple" and "The Return of Simple." Now they can, once again, enjoy the last of Hughes's original Simple books.
