Audible has the classic “Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison for free through Dec. 31. Run time: 18 hrs., 36 min.
“Elllison’s Invisible Man is a monumental novel, one that can well be called an epic of 20th-century African-American life. It is a strange story, in which many extraordinary things happen, some of them shocking and brutal, some of them pitiful and touching – yet always with elements of comedy and irony and burlesque that appear in unexpected places.
After a brief prologue, the story begins with a terrifying experience from the hero’s high-school days; it then moves quickly to the campus of a “Southern Negro college” and then to New York’s Harlem, where most of the action takes place.
