Zora and Langston
The dramatic and moving story of one of the most influential friendships in literature. Zora Neale Hurston (Their Eyes Were Watching God) and Langston Hughes (The Negro Speaks of Rivers, Let America Be America Again) were collaborators, literary gadflies, and close companions. They traveled together in Hurston’s dilapidated car through the rural South collecting folklore, worked on the play Mule Bone, and wrote scores of loving letters to each other. They even had the same patron: Charlotte Osgood Mason, a wealthy white woman who insisted on being called “Godmother.” Written by Yuval Taylor. Hardcover; 308 pages.
