Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

This profound, angry book is about a nameless black 'invisible' character moved to political activism by the racism he encounters. It is the story of his travels as a black man in a white land and we watch him being led deeper and deeper into a realisation of just how angry a black man in America should be. Ellison conceals his message in a compelling and engaging narrative.
Ralph Ellison was born in Oklahoma.
