Dion Graham's lively voice draws listeners into the world of this long ignored masterpiece, unpublished for nearly 90 years. His stellar narration begins with a thorough introduction that familiarizes listeners with Mckay's work during the Harlem Renaissance and provides historical context for the book's importance. The story follows an African man whose discovery as a stowaway aboard a transatlantic ship results in the loss of his legs. After winning a lawsuit against the shipping company, he returns to Marseille and the prostitute he fell in love with there. Graham's agile narration captures the messy underworld of 1920s Marseille. He delivers French, African, and American accents, creating memorable voices for the sailors, prostitutes, and radicals of many genders, races, and sexualities.
