Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison
"So much has changed since Ellison’s groundbreaking tome won the National Book Award in 1953, but arguably even more has not. Most notably, many men of color often are not seen by our society as themselves so much as what is projected upon them, which is a profoundly lonely way to move through life. As a powerful mirror to the most alienating aspects of American life, this book burns bright 65 years after its original publication."
