The stunning, thought-provoking first novel by a lost giant of American literature (The New Yorker)

June, 1957. One hot afternoon in the backwaters of the Deep South, a young black farmer named Tucker Caliban salts his fields, shoots his horse, burns his house, and heads north with his wife and child. His departure sets off an exodus of the state's entire black population, throwing the established order into brilliant disarray. Told from the points of view of the white residents who remained, A Different Drummer stands, decades after its first publication in 1962, as an extraordinary and prescient triumph of satire and spirit.


Authors: Intisar Khanani

Paperback, 224 pages, Ages 14 and up. Publisher: Anchor Books, May 1, 1990.
