Yesterday Will Make You Cry

by ,

In 1937, Chester Himes, newly released from a seven-year stretch in the Ohio State Penitentiary, finished his first novel, "Yesterday Will Make You Cry", the autobiographical story of young Jimmy Monroe's passage through the prison system. Even after it was bowdlerized, the work was recognized as a sardonic masterpiece of debasement and transfiguration. Now this classic is available in a new edition, complete and unexpurgated, with its raw honesty and startling compassion entirely intact.
