Cane

(1923)
A novel by

 
 
The book is structured as a series of vignettes revolving around the origins and experiences of African Americans in the United States. The vignettes alternate in structure between narrative prose, poetry, and play-like passages of dialogue. As a result, the novel has been classified as a composite novel or as a short story cycle. Though some characters and situations recur between vignettes, the vignettes are mostly freestanding, tied to the other vignettes thematically and contextually more than through specific plot details.

Genre: Literary Fiction

Praise for this book

"[Cane] has been reverberating in me to an astonishing degree. I love it passionately; could not possibly exist without it." - Alice Walker
