  • Cane

    By Jean Toomer

    Read by Sean Crisden

    "This book should be on all readers' and writers' desks and in their minds." - Maya Angelou

    "By far the most impressive product of the Negro Renaissance, Cane ranks with Richard Wright's Native Son and Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man as a measure of the Negro novelist's highest achievement. Jean Toomer belongs to that first rank of writers who use words almost as a plastic medium, shaping new meanings from an original and highly personal style." - Robert A. Bone, The Negro Novel in America (1965)
