Title: Strange Fruit
Author: Lillian Smith
All the agony and frustration, the fear and guilt which disturb and degrade not only the relationships of Negro and white, but the individual soul as well, have been woven into this superb novel, the poignant love story of a white man and a beautiful, educated Negro girl, and of the violence that flared in the wake of their passion.
The love between Tracy Deen and Nonnie grew through the years to its first fulfillment when both were too young to realize the terrible power they had unleashed. For theirs was no tawdry affair between an adolescent boy and a servant girl, but a passionate love that seemed indestructible—until Tracy, chafing under the pressures of his life in a small Southern town, in one thoughtless moment precipitated the tragedy that forms the climax of this heartbreakingly real and moving story.
But more than a love story of intimacy and tenderness, Strange Fruit is also a story of two races, white and Negro, rooted in a common earth, straining toward a common happiness, yet in brutal conflict with each other.
"An important book, by any standard . . . One of the most important novels to come out of the South in years." —William DuBois, New "fork Times.
