I was reminded of Native Son‘s Bigger Thomas in chapter seven. In chapter nine of Invisible Man, a friend from the past pops up in the text. Two friends, actually: Jim and Huck Finn. In case your holiday reading has slowed down (like mine), I won’t explain what Twain’s characters are doing in Ellison’s book. I’ll just ask if you’ve run into any other classic character cameos in your reading. Please share the cameos and your place in the comments.
