Abstract:

"Remarkable for their immediacy of attention to the spoken rhythm and motion of life, SPUNK is a magnificent legacy from a writer whose work has sparked one of the major literary revivals of our time. These stories, many of which are collected here for the first time, focus on the rural Black community of Eatonville, Florida, and on Harlem during the height of the Harlem Renaissance. Hurston's characters run the gamut from vengeful lovers to conmen to powerful and resourceful women, and range from the downhome to the legendary and fabulous. Together they form a matchless celebration of the vitality and exuberance of Black culture. As always, Hurston's prose is bright and brassy and true, distinguishing her as an American original who has rightly been called the heard behind an entire generation of modern Black women writers." -- Publisher's description
