Reviews
"As one of our most celebrated literary critics, Trudier Harris has done it again. Bigger is the definitive study of one of the most (in)famous characters in American literary history."--E. Patrick Johnson, author of Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South--An Oral History

"Bigger Thomas is unquestionably one of the most memorable figures in American fiction. Scrupulously charting his literary life, Trudier Harris richly illuminates the complex meanings of Wright's masterpiece."--Arnold Rampersad, author of The Life of Langston Hughes
"Finally, a sustained scholarly exploration of a character who, for over eight decades, has haunted our literary and cultural imaginations. Trudier Harris, one of our leading experts on Black literature, takes us on a journey into the worlds of Richard Wright's Bigger Thomas."--Howard Rambsy II, author of Bad Men: Creative Touchstones of Black Writers
