Dust Tracks on a Road by Zora Neale Hurston


Out of Stock


With a new introduction by JESMYN WARD ‘Zora Neale Hurston was a knockout in her life a wonderful writer and a fabulous person. Devilishly funny and academically solid: delicious mixture’ MAYA ANGELOU First published in 1942 at the height of her popularity Dust Tracks on a Road is Zora Neale Hurston’s candid exuberant account of her rise from childhood poverty in the rural South to a prominent place among the leading artists and intellectuals of the Harlem Renaissance. As compelling as her acclaimed fiction Hurston’s literary self-portrait offers a revealing often audacious glimpse into the life – public and private – of an extraordinary artist anthropologist chronicler and champion of the black experience in America. Full of the wit and wisdom of a proud spirited woman who started off low and climbed high: ‘I have been in Sorrow’s kitchen and licked out all the pots. Then I have stood on the peaky mountain wrapped in rainbows with a harp and a sword in my hands.’ ‘One of the greatest writers of our time’ TONI MORRISON
