As much a historical document as it is a novel, this 1946 winner of the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award is the poignant and unblinkingly honest story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to live and raise her son by herself amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s. Originally published in 1946 and hailed by critics as a masterwork, The Street was Ann Petry's first novel, a beloved bestseller with more than a million copies in print. Its haunting tale still resonates today.… (mere)

Un clásico de la literatura norteamericana absolutamente vigente sobre las dificultades de una madre soltera para sacar adelante a su hijo.

Nueva York, década de 1940. En una vivienda pobre en el corazón de Harlem, Lutie Johnson está decidida a construir una nueva vida para ella y su hijo de ocho años. Tras dejar a un marido infiel, sola y casi sin dinero, Lutie tiene fe en el sueño americano y está convencida de que sólo necesita trabajo duro y determinación. Pero en su camino se dará de frente con una realidad marcada por la violencia hacia las mujeres, la pobreza y el racismo.
Publicada originalmente en 1946 y aclamada por los críticos como una obra maestra, La calle vendió un millón y medio de ejemplares, convirtiendo así a Petry en la primera autora afroamericana en superar el millón de libros vendidos. Un libro adictivo que aúna magistralmente elementos de una trama de suspense con temas sociales aún vigentes, y que traducimos por primera vez al castellano.

What a heart breaking and beautiful story. I have a bit of a weak spot for stories of poverty and adverse circumstance. Of heroes struggling and eventually overcoming those adversities. Only this heroine doesn't stand a fighting chance. Because she's black, because she's a woman, because she's poor and because of The Street. The world has changed a lot since, but I'm afraid that much of the story is very relevant today...

Style: I was very surprised by how modern this novel feels. The ever shifting perspective, sometimes changing main character halfway a scene, painting a kaleidoscopic portrait of the street and its inhabitants. The Street itself as the main character, always there, looming.

The Street reminded me of several of my favourite novels, all of which are more recent and may have been inspired by The Street. For example the Egyptian novel The Yacoubian Building by Alaa Al Aswani or the Dutch novel Dubbelspel by Frank Martinus Arion. I hadn't heard of Ann Petry or The Street before and am very happy that I got introduced to it via my book club. ( )

What a powerful book. I highly recommend it as one that still rings true, has intense descriptions and characters and is simply heartbreaking. ( )

Petry's novel is rich in detail of life in Harlem in the 1940s. Most of that detail is gritty, if not downright gruesome, and Petry spares us nothing of the physical and emotional desolation of being poor, black and untethered in that place and time. The writing is often superb, but occasionally repetitious, and tends toward preachiness in places. We spend a lot of time inside the heads of Lutie Johnson, Jones the Super, and Jones's current woman, Min. Lutie is a young single mother, struggling to keep her son safe and fed, always hoping for an opportunity to do just a little better, and get him away from "the street" (116th St) and its evil influences. Jones is a man who has spent most of his life in cellars, tending furnaces, fixing ancient plumbing, and lusting after attractive women like Lutie while living with a succession of "wives" who soon tire of his peculiarities. Min has found Jones to be a good enough meal and rent ticket for a couple years, has even tried to make his life better with her domestic touches, but sees no future with him once his obsession with Lutie Johnson takes hold. These are all strong interesting characters, and in each case their narratives took me to unexpected places and unpredictable outcomes. Except. I just don't buy Lutie's final scene. No spoilers...I saw one development coming, but its aftermath did not play out in a way I found totally believable given what I knew of Lutie's character by that time. Granted her options were less than limited, I thought the novel's ending failed to come up to the creative standard set by the rest of it. That, combined with a little too much telling (and re-telling) in place of showing, subtracted a star from my rating. Still, I found this an incredibly powerful read. ( )

Another one I read during graduate school. I read it twice back then, once for a class, and then around the date I am noting now for a paper I had to write on it. It was kind of forced reading by then, which probably puts a bit of bias into my impression of it. I made a some good notes on my journal back then but all very academic. The one thing I will say from back then: the conflict of the book lies on how to succeed by hard work when conditions and environment are not favorable? As I think about it now, I have to say the book would seem very relevant today. ( )

Ann Petry beschrijft de schrijnende situatie van een zwarte vrouw in het Harlem van de jaren veertig van de vorige eeuw. Een situatie waarin gedurende de afgelopen tachtig jaar niet veel verbetering lijkt te zijn gekomen, gezien alle initiatieven rondom Black Lives Matter van dit moment. Bovendien doet ze dit op een indringende, spannende en zeer stijlvolle wijze waardoor de roman, ondanks de schrijnende inhoud, toch een groot genoegen is om te lezen. Wat goed dat dit meesterwerk uit de Afro-Amerikaanse literatuur nu in Nederlandse vertaling beschikbaar is…lees verder >
