if i had to chose just one, i would have to say that this is my favorite book. there are few books im okay with reading more than once but invisible man, i feel, is one i will read many times over during my lifetime. ellison is pure genius. every page from the introduction to the prologue to the complex and unconventional ending is a must read. an excellent character study it’s one of the most important pieces written about the black experience, ever. no light treading with this one.
