Strange Fruit (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 1 jul 1992
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
When it was first published in 1944, this novel with a curious title - taken from a Billie Holiday song about a lynching - sparked immediate controversy: It horrified some critics, prompted booksellers in Boston and Detroit to ban its sale, caused the U.S. postal service to seize copies, and tempted the public enough to make it the years's No. 1 fiction best-seller.
Biografía del autor
Lillian Smith (1897 - 1966) was a novelist, essayist, and one of the first prominent white southerners to denounce racial segregation openly and to work actively against the entrenched and often brutally enforced world of Jim Crow. Author of Killers of the Dream, The Journey, and One Hour and recipient of the Southern Authors Award in 1950, she was both celebrated and condemned for Strange Fruit, her first, and most accomplished, novel.

are still ones we are dealing with today.
I mostly love the style that the book is written in, with different stories inside of the story, all creating an intricate portrait of each of the characters. The language is dark and passionate, especially in the instances of Tracy & Noni's own thoughts to themselves about each other. I found myself completely inside of their world, feeling their struggle with the emotions they had for each other in a society that just could never accept them being together. This book is a great portrait of the racially divided South in the 1920's, a heartwrenching love story that is an absolute treasure to own.
