The Street tells the poignant, often heartbreaking, story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to raise her son amid the violence, poverty and racial dissonance of Harlem in the war years.
First published in 1946, The Street was a huge bestseller, selling over 1.5 million copies. This resonant, powerful novel is ripe for rediscovery.
