The City of Refuge

A collection of stories by

One of the premier writers of the Harlem Renaissance, Rudolph Fisher wrote short stories depicting the multifaceted black urban experience that are still acclaimed today for their humor, grace, and objective view of Harlem life. This definitive collection of Fisher s short stories has now been expanded to include seven previously unpublished stories, two unpublished speeches, and the popular article The Caucasian Storms Harlem, describing the craze for black music and dance. McCluskey s introduction has been updated to place the additional works within the context of Fisher s career while situating his oeuvre within the broader context of American writing during the twenties. John McCluskey, Jr., is Professor of African American and African Diaspora Studies at Indiana University in Bloomington and author of Look What They Done to My Song, Mr. America s Last Season Blues, and Black Men Speaking.
