Ralph Ellison “The Invisible Man”

Ellison’s most famous novel was the only one published during his lifetime (his other work was published after his death in 1994). It received the National Book Award in 1953. The book tells the life story of an unnamed African American man, who considers himself to be invisible by most of the world –a plight mirrored by other African Americans during the time.
