Before there was Alice Walker and Toni Morrison and Toni Cade Bambara and the rediscovery of Zora Neale Hurston, there was Ann Petry. The Street is a milestone in black women's writing, and a milestone in literature about black urban ghettos. This protrait of a black woman's struggle to survive in Harlem during World War II will haunt you for a long time, especially when you realize that a good deal hasn't changed a great deal. You will long remember too the characters who inhabit this street which becomes a metaphor or a microcosm for the "residence" of all disadvantaged, low income people. Terrifying and you owe it to yourself to read it in these day of economic downturn.
