Goodbye, Native Son

23 Sep

Native Son

The three of us at “A Classic Case of Madness” have finished Native Son.  We wrapped up over frozen yogurt, using hushed voices.  Native Son is not rated “G”, and we didn’t want to cause difficulties for the young families at the yogurt shop.  “Mommy, did you hear those ladies talking about stuffing someone in a furnace?”

If you have finished Wright’s work, you may…

1.  Take a break and read something a little lighter like the newspaper.  Oh, wait.  Maybe not.
2. Snag a copy of this movie version and let us know what you think. Oprah plays Mrs. Thomas, and Elizabeth McGovern of Downton Abbey fame is Mary Dalton.
3. Take the Sparknotes’ quiz.  Is number nineteen correct?
4. Search for our next book: Camus’ The Stranger.
