John A. Williams.

John A. Wiliams (1925 -21015) was perhaps the finest African-American novelist of his generation. Peter Dzwonkoski worked for several years under famed bibliographer & archivist Donald Gallup at Yale's Beinecke Library, then become Director of Rare Books & Special Collections at the University of Rochester. Over decades, he befriended many writers, oversaw exhibitions, published essys on books & book collecting, deleighted in book-talk. I am pleased to offer some books from that collection. These are titles from American journalist and novelist John A. Williams, author of The Angry Ones (1960) and The Man Who Cried I Am (1967).
