Publisher's Summary

"Warm, witty, imaginative... This is a rich and winning book." (The New Yorker)

Dust Tracks on a Road is the bold, poignant, and funny autobiography of novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, one of American literature's most compelling and influential authors. Hurston's powerful novels of the South - including Jonah's Gourd Vine and, most famously, Their Eyes Were Watching God - continue to enthrall readers with their lyrical grace, sharp detail, and captivating emotionality. First published in 1942, Dust Tracks on a Road is Hurston's personal story, told in her own words. The Perennial Modern Classics Deluxe edition includes an all-new foreword by Maya Angelou, an extended biography by Valerie Boyd, and a special section featuring the contemporary reviews that greeted the book's original publication.

Relatable in 2018

While I found Ms.Hurston quite critical of Blacks I also found her most objective and yet flavorful.If Ms.Hurston had spoken to me this very moment I would be shocked not to hear Ms.Tarpins voice; beautiful voice.
