Signed by the author on the front flyleaf. Himes' first novel, a sexually-charged exploration of the alienated consciousness of an African-American worker in an armaments plant in Los Angeles during World War Two, it earned him critical praise, favorable comparison to the works of Richard Wright, and significant analysis in Franz Fanon's seminal study of racism, Black Skin, White Masks (Peau noire, masques blancs, 1952).
