"Warm, witty, imaginative...?his is a rich and winning book."-The New Yorker Dust Tracks on a Road is the bold, poignant, and funny autobiography of novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, one of American literature's most compelling and influential authors. Hurston's powerful novels of the South-including Jonah's Gourd Vine and, most famously, Their Eyes Were Watching God-continue to enthrall readers with their lyrical grace, sharp detail, and captivating emotionality. First published in 1942, Dust Tracks on a Road is Hurston's personal story, told in her own words. The Perennial Modern Classics Deluxe edition includes an all-new forward by Maya Angelou, an extended biography by Valerie Boyd, and a special section featuring the contemporary reviews that greeted the book's original publication.

"Narrator Bahni Turpin has the perfect voice to deliver Zora Neale Hurston's lively autobiography. Throughout the audiobook, listeners accompany Hurston from a rambunctious and peripatetic childhood in Florida to groundbreaking ethnic research in the Bahamas, and places in between. With a soulful lilt, Turpin brings Hurston's lyrical stories alive in listeners' imagination. She gives voice to diverse people as Hurston cavorts with celebrities of the early twentieth century, including singer Ethel Waters and writer/photographer Carl Van Vechten. If Hurston had to buoy her own self-confidence in her early years, she doesn't admit it. These loosely connected folk stories reflect intelligent wandering rather than a quest.
