Dunbar, Paul Laurence: The Heart of Happy Hollow. v1, 29 Feb 2008

First published in 1904, The Heart of Happy Hollow features sixteen short stories that provide rare glimpses into the lives of African Americans after the Civil War. Through characters ranging from schemers to preachers, Paul Laurence Dunbar crafted a rare snapshot of long-lost communities and their poignant sensibilities. An author who achieved remarkable versatility, he draws on language that is by turns folksy and formal, capturing vernacular dialects as easily as he delivers a hauntingly poetic scene.

In this collection, readers meet an influential entrepreneur who must navigate a treacherous political landscape; a Southern spiritual leader who must learn to accept the mores of his son, who was educated in the North; a reporter who restores hope in Santa Claus for a group of destitute siblings; and a host of other unique men and women giving voice to timeless themes.

Written by a visionary whose work has experienced a recent revival among commercial and scholarly audiences alike, The Heart of Happy Hollow will introduce more book lovers to this revered storyteller.

Born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1872, PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR was one of the first African American poets to gain national recognition, completing six volumes before his death at age thirty-three. He also published numerous short stories and four novels, including The Sport of the Gods.
