A new edition of Gentelman Jigger by Harlem Renaissance figure Richard Bruce Nugent has recently been published. It’s edited by Thomas Wirth, a friend of Nugent’s who also edited a collection of his work for Duke, Gay Rebel of the Harlem Renaissance. In the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Kandia Crazy Horse writes that Wirth "has done us all a great service by unearthing and recollating Nugent’s masterful roman á clef.
It’s an intriguing, nudge-winky funhouse that holds a mirror to the New
Negritude milieu circa 1927. . . ."
