Dust Tracks on A Road
The Restored Text Established by the Library of AmericaBook - 2010
Dust Tracks on a Road is the bold, poignant, and funny autobiography of novelist, folklorist, and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, one of American literature's most compelling and influential authors. Hurston's powerful novels of the South--including Jonah's Gourd Vine and, most famously, Their Eyes Were Watching God--continue to enthrall readers with their lyrical grace, sharp detail, and captivating emotionality. First published in 1942, Dust Tracks on a Road is Hurston's personal story, told in her own words. The Perennial Modern Classics Deluxe edition includes an all-new forward by Maya Angelou, an extended biography by Valerie Boyd, and a special P.S. section featuring the contemporary reviews that greeted the book's original publication.

I wrote Their Eyes Were Watching God in Haiti. It was dammed up in me and I wrote it under internal pressure in seven weeks. I wish that I could write it again. In fact, I regret all my books. It is one of tragedies of life that one cannot have all the wisdom one is ever to possess, in the beginning.
Perhaps it is just as well to be rash and foolish for awhile. If writers were too wise perhaps no books would be written at all.
