    Paperback Description:

    “One of the greatest writers of our time.”—Toni Morrison

    Available together for the first time in one specially designed boxed set, ten repackaged paperback editions of Zora Neale Hurston’s classic works—each featuring a striking cover envisioned by a star contemporary Black artist, including Charly Palmer, Toyin Ojih Odutola, and more.

    Zora Neale Hurston’s work brilliantly captured the experience of American Black life in the early twentieth century and transformed the boundaries of modern literature. This boxed set features the best of her fiction and nonfiction in one extraordinary, giftable package.

    Zora Neale Hurston Boxed Set includes:

    Dust Tracks on a Road — an intimate and insightful memoir of Zora’s childhood in the rural South and her rise to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance

    Jonah’s Gourd Vine — a novel about a young man who loves too many women

    Mules and Men — an oral history of Black American folklore featuring sermons, songs, sayings, and tall tales since the days of enslavement

    Tell My Horse — an insider look at the voodoo culture of Haiti and Jamaica of the 1930s

    The Complete Stories — a collection of Zora’s most popular short fiction

    Every Tongue Got to Confess — an anthology of folktales that recounts the voices of ordinary people and celebrates the richness of Black vernacular

    Moses, Man of the Mountain — a compelling allegory of power, redemption, and faith that blends the Moses of the Old Testament with the Moses of black folklore and song

    Seraph on the Suwanee — a novel examining a complicated marriage

    Mule Bone — a three-act play written with Langston Hughes that explores life in a rural Southern black community

    Their Eyes Were Watching God — the Southern love story that is the most highly acclaimed novel in the African-American literary canon

    A tribute to one of our greatest writers and a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance, Zora Neale Hurston Boxed Set is essential for devoted collectors of her writing, an opportunity for fans to rediscover her genius, and a rich wellspring for readers new to her canon.
