Publisher Marketing:

African futurism, gothic romance, ghost story, parable, psychological thriller, inner-space fiction--Dumas's stories form a vivid, expansive portrait of Black life in America.

Henry Dumas's fabulist fiction is a masterful synthesis of myth and religion, culture and nature, mask and identity, the present and the ancestral. From the Deep South to the simmering streets of Harlem, his characters embark on real, magical, and mythic quests. Humming with life, Dumas's stories create a collage of mid-twentieth-century Black experiences, interweaving religious metaphor, African cosmologies, diasporic folklore, and America's history of slavery and systemic racism.
