Summary: At his death in 1994, Ralph Ellison left behind several thousand pages of his unfinished second novel, which he had spent nearly four decades writing. Five years later, Random House publishedJuneteenth, drawn from the central narrative of Ellison's epic work in progress.Three Days Before the Shooting . . .gathers in one volume all the parts of that planned opus, including three major sequences never before published. Set in the frame of a deathbed vigil, the story is a gripping multi
generational saga centered on the assassination of a controversial, race-baiting U.S. senator who's being tended to by an elderly black jazz musician turned preacher.
