First Edition.

Very good in dust jacket with some edge wear and some chipping to the bottom of the spine jacket. Boards are clean and bright. The binding is tight and the book has no previous owner markings. The jacket is not price clipped. This is not a book club edition.

Cross Damon is a man at odds with society and with himself—a man of superior intellect who hungers for peace but who brings terror and destruction wherever he goes.

From Richard Wright, one of the most powerful, acclaimed, and essential American authors of the twentieth century, comes a compelling story of a black man's attempt to escape his past and start anew in Harlem. The Outsider is an important work of fiction that depicts American racism and its devastating consequences in raw and unflinching terms. At once brilliantly imagined and frighteningly prescient, it is an epic exploration of the tragic roots of criminal behavior.
