About the Author

Richard Wright won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his novels, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation. He died in 1960.

Reviews

"A powerfully written, compelling crime novel. Richard Wright's final work, including its moving introduction by his daughter Julia, is a fitting tribute to the centennial of this great writer's birth. His voice, above all others, reveals the searing pain and anger of black consciousness in America."--William Ferris, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
“Wright's masterful depiction of Turner's states of mind and Tommy's catalytic antagonism leads us into a vortex. . . . The novel is a summation of Wright's aesthetic.”--Jerry W. Ward, Jr., Natchez Democrat
A Father's Law is vintage Richard Wright: the emotion, the intensity, the suspense make it of a piece with Wright's major novels and short stories. It is a gripping tale of fear, uncertainty and confusion.”--Amritjit Singh
“Any undiscovered material from his illustrious career would be considered a literary treasure. . . . [From a] master of psychological torment.”--Seattle Times
