E.R. Braithwaite, New English Libary, 1973, Softcover.


Black cover blurb:

A white man sits, reluctantly, beside a black man on a crowded train to New York. Their conversation evokes memories for the black man (Braithwaite himself) and of his struggle against racial prejudice. After serving in the R.A.F. in England during the war, he then found he was unable to find a job despite his excellent qualifications, except in a tough East End of London school. There was no doubt in anyone's mind that this was because of the colour of his skin. Despite these setbacks he is now a successful writer and Guyanese ambassador although each day brings with it another insult. "Brilliant exploration of racial prejudice from the unusual angle of the successful Black man" - Daily Telegraph "If anyone is still in honest doubt about the pervasiveness of colour-feeling, I suggest he reads E.R. Braithwaite's book without delay" - Martin Fagg, The Times "Tense...well writen" - The Scotsman
