Riassunto: [MP3CD audiobook format in vinyl case.]
As much a historical document as it is a novel, this 1946 winner of the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award is the poignant and unblinkingly honest story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to live and raise her son by herself amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s.
Originally published in 1946 and hailed by critics as a masterwork, The Street was Ann Petry's first novel, a beloved bestseller with more than a million copies in print. Its haunting tale still resonates today.
About the Author: ANN PETRY (1908-1997), a black novelist, short story writer, and writer of books for young people, was one of America's most distinguished authors. She began by studying pharmacy, and upon receiving her PhG in 1931, she worked as a pharmacist in her family's drugstores in Old Saybrook and Old Lyme. During these years she wrote several short stories. When she married George David Petry in 1938, the course of her life changed. They moved to New York, and Ann went to work for Harlem's Amsterdam News. By 1941 she was covering general news stories and editing the women's pages of the People's Voice in Harlem. Her first published story appeared in 1943 in the Crisis, a magazine published monthly by the NAACP. Afterward she began work on her first novel - The Street, published in 1946 - for which she received the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship. She wrote two more novels, The Country Place and The Narrows, and numerous short stories, articles, and children's books. She was also appointed visiting professor of English at the University of Hawaii and lectured widely throughout the United States.
