Baker & Taylor
Presents a collection of thirteen previously unpublished stories written between 1937 and the 1950s

Blackwell North Amer
Written between 1937 and 1954 and collected here for the first time, Flying Home and Other Stories represents the best of Invisible Man author Ralph Ellison's short fiction. There are thirteen pieces, six of which were never published in Ellison's lifetime. Ellison draws on his early experiences - his father's death when he was three; hoboing his way on a freight train to Tuskegee Institute to follow his early dreams of becoming a musician - to create stories that, according to The Washington Post, "approach the simple elegance of Chekhov."
