A Different Drummer
"Brilliant....The rare first novel that makes future ones seem both inevitable and exciting."
--Kathryn Shulz, The New Yorker
When Tucker Caliban, with his wife and child, salts his fields, burns his house, and leaves the confederate state that's been his home, the entire black population follows him. Told from the points of view of the white residents who remained, A Different Drummer remains, decades after its first publication in 1962, one of the most trenchant, imaginative, and hard-hitting works of fiction to come out of the bitter struggle for African-American civil rights.
