A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Selection Colonel Norwood is the despotic owner of Big House Plantation, where he lives alone but for the occasional company of his black mistress, Coralee Lewis. But this summer, a new breeze is blowing in with the warm Georgia wind—his son is coming home. From the publication of his first book in 1926, Langston Hughes was hailed as the poet laureate of black America. In "Father and Son," Hughes reveals himself to be a writer of prose just as lasting as his poetry, and one of the true icons of modern American letters. The staggering final story in the collection The Ways of White Folks. An eBook short.
