At work on a Black Women Writers in the Archives curriculum, Arisa White discovered recordings of established and soon-to-be poetry legends in the archives of the San Francisco State University. I felt part of something that was regenerative, something that gave my body the security of a back-presence-a posse of poets with the conviction of their word.

African American writer Ann Lane Petry skillfully illuminated the range of black and white American experience in her novels, short stories, and other works. The impact of Petry's writing continues to be appreciated: literary critics praise her as the most successful follower of the 1940s Richard Wright school of urban protest writing; and black feminists cite The Street as the first African-American novel in which motherhood is a major theme. In addition, black feminists commend Petry for showing through The Street 's main character, Lutie, that a lack of connection to self and community can result in one's downfall.

Her command of suspense as a writer is excellent.

Excellent read! A love story set in the 50s, with a great realness to it. Highly recommended.

Such a great novel. Unfortunately I lost my book and had to purchase again. This is the only book a repurchased in my life. Love the story and rereading it again and taking notes this time. I love how Ann Petry writes, for example, she uses phrases like "Bible carriers". Love this book!!!

I purchased this book because I loved "The Street".

However, I find this book to be very difficult to read. It is a slow read and hard to follow.

I don't think that I will be able to continue reading this book.

Good book about race, love and mistakes. The writing is a bit hard to read but once you get into the book, it flows. At first, I was a little turned off by the writing, but as I read more, they style made perfect sense. Yes, this book was written a long time ago but it is well worth the read. the charecters jump out at you, the situations pull you in and you just cannot stop reading. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC of this book in return for my honest review.

Ann Petry combines the heartfelt social justice sensibilities of John Steinbeck with the psychological suspense of Alfred Hitchcock. Far ahead of her time, she sold more than a million copies of her first novel, The Street. Her novels reflect the world she lived in, where the deck was stacked against black Americans, whose valiant attempts to beat the odds, or simply survive, are at the heart of her stories. I hope someone writes a biography of her someday.

The Narrows was written in 1953. Amazing. Timeless love story of a Dartmouth grad of history who happens to be black and a rich married heiress who happens to be white. Their lives intersect one night in Harlem and continue down a dangerous road of love, passion, and retribution. The star of the book is Link Williams, a young man adopted at the age of eight by Abbie Crunch and the Major. When the Major dies, Link feels invisible and finds a new home in the Last Chance bar where Bill Hod becomes his surrogate father, teaching Link what it means to be a man, a black man.
He grows up strong and intelligent, but faltering in one area. The area of love. The woman that he chooses, the one he wants to marry unbeknownst to him is already married. Worst of all she is white. This breaks many hearts, the people who have loved him and taken care of him, Abbie Crunch, Weak Knees, Bill Hod, and the rest of the Last Chance patrons where Link is the heart and soul, all watch as he make this fatal mistake.
Phenomenal writing, literature, pure art without the sensationalism that is prevalent in our books today.
this one is about a interracial couple in connecticut in the 1950's...ms petry manages to handle this story with a cool handle never allow it to become merely tabloid fodder..some of the other plots that were interesting was link's relationship with bill hod, who was practically his father and the butler who marries a promisculous heavy-set black women...
