Ishmael Reed in T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Novelist, poet, and playwright Ishmael Reed is prominently featured in the holiday issue of T: The New York Times Style Magazine alongside 31 other black male writers of extraordinary talent. Ayana Mathis states:

CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN-AMERICAN literature is formally sophisticated, irreducibly nuanced and highly individualized. The writers in these pages may be a cohort of sorts, yet their work is distinguished by a great variety of voices and aesthetics…To read the work by these men is to have an urgent encounter with a vital and thriving consciousness.
