Description
At his death in 1994, the author of the National Book Award winner Invisible Man left behind more than 2,000 pages of his unfinished second novel, which he had spent nearly four decades writing. Five years later, Juneteenth was published, drawn from the central narrative of Ralph Ellison's epic work in progress; this book gathers in one volume all the parts of that planned opus. Set in the frame of a deathbed vigil, the story is a multigenerational saga centered on the assassination of controversial, race-baiting U.S. senator Adam Sunraider, who is being tended to by an elderly black jazz musician turned preacher.

"Less a conventional novel than the prose equivalent of a jazz solo, or a series of solos ... some of [Ellison's] finest prose."Newsweek
