    Langston Hughes is a literary genius and his works transcend time The relatability of his characters especially Simple is mind blowing and the relevance of his topics even to today's world is spot on His stories are entertaining and really get the reader thinking about society and one's life I think the summary on the inside of the book cover is perfect Countless exchanges between Simple and his companion offer wit and wisdom that remind contemporary readers why Langston Hughes is so special I highly recommend this book and the author to everyone I could read the book again and I just finished it
