 Charles Johnson
Soulcatcher
(2001)
  

Faith and the Good Thing
(2001) A" brilliant novel of allegory, myth and folk tales, and a vivid realism very much in the American tradition." --The Washington Post
  

King
(2000)
  

Dreamer
(1999) Johnson... writes with a compelling profundity and power. Like Shelley's "Prometheus Unbound" and the Gospel writers, Johnson takes us to a time, one within living memory, when a 'dreamer' among us saw love as our redemptive principle and strongest weapon before he 'died for our collective racial sins'." --Boston Globe
  

I Call Myself an Artist
(1999)
  

Africans in America
(1999)
  

Middle Passage
(1998) Long after we'd stopped believing in the great American novel, along comes a spellbinding adventure story that may be just that." --Chicago Tribune
  

Black Men Speaking
(1997)
  

Oxherding Tale
(1995) A work of courage and compassion, virtuosity and intelligence... Johnson skillfully avoids melodramatic platitudes while creating suspense and comedy, pathos and nostalgia. In the process he invents rich variations on questions about sex, race, and class." --Village Voice
  

The Sorcerer's Apprentice
(1994)
  

Being and Race
(1990) Johnson... offers a profound, lovely rumination on the state of, and practitioners of, contemporary black American fiction... Absolutely approachable, absolutely essential criticism for any avid reader of serious fiction. Booklist
