Richard Wright

I noticed that September 4th is the birthday of probably my favorite author--Richard Wright.  For more info on this author, you can view the following site:

I was first introduced to Wright my junior year in college in a literature class.  We read Native Son.  I was reading the book and realized I was cheering on a character who killed an (semi)innocent woman, chopped up her body, and put it in a furnace.  How could it be that I sympathized and was even rooting for such a man.  Wright's writing is that powerful.
