LAWD TODAY was written before the publication of NATIVE SON.
"UNTIL THE TIME of his death in 1960, Richard Wright "was generally accounted the most gifted living American Negro writer". His most famous novels, NATIVE SON and
BLACK BOY, had already gained a secure place as classics of Twentieth Century American fiction and all his work had become internationally famous. The posthumous publication of a new Richard Wright novel is, therefore an event
of some literary significance*". (*Dust jacket Flap writeup).
