During her lifetime (1896-1985), Worth Tuttle Hedden published three full-length novels and a family memoir in addition to many short stories, essays, and book reviews. She was a pioneer in both feminism and race relations and is one of America's great but forgotten writers.
This is a reprint of the prize-winning novel about a young woman who unknowingly signs up to
teach classes at an all-black college in New Orleans in 1920. It is one of the best--and
earliest--views of breaking the color line as well as a touching love story of a man and
woman of different races. The new introduction by Hedden scholar and biographer P. V. LeForge
brings the novel into historical context and gives a brief sketch of this wonderful, but
heretofore forgotten writer. Price: $14.95 trade paperback.
These are all stories of race. Written between 1917 and 1947, they are the author's attempts to describe the racial situation in the South in the early part of the 20th Century. Like her award-winning novel, The Other Room," the stories are sensitive, original, and important. This book is avaialble as a $3.99 e-book only.
