Selected Poems of Langston Hughes: A Classic Collection of Poems by a Master of American Verse

by: Langston Hughes

Thanks to a certain Dr. Junius Crookman and his mysterious process, Max and other eager clients develop bleached skin that permits them to enter previously forbidden territory. What they discover in white society, however, gives them second thoughts.
