Yet his powerfully depicted adventures - from his expulsion from a Southern college to a terrifying Harlem race riot - go far beyond the story of one man. The lives of countless millions are evoked in episodes like the 'Brotherhood' and an old Negro couple's heartrending eviction, which leads him to political activism.
A superb portrait of a generation of Black Americans, 'Invisible Man' counts as one of the great classics of post-war American fiction.
