Native Son (Abridged)

Native Son (Abridged) - Richard Wright The unfolding of this story has the inevitability of a car stuck on a railway line with an express train hurtling towards it. You know what's going to happen, you don't want it to happen, you can't look away while it happens. When the smash comes, it's still a massive shock. I caught myself muttering, "No, no, no, don't do it." as I was reading.A very affecting and intense book.
