During 1940-1941 Wright collaborated with Paul Green to write a stage adaptation of . It ran on Broadway in the spring of 1941 and was produced by John Houseman andstaged by Orson Welles. Simultaneously, Wright published his sociological-psychologicaltreatise (1941), with photographs collected by Edwin Rosskam; the book was well received. Hisautobiography, , came out in 1945, again a bestseller andBook-of-the-Month Club selection, although the U.S. Senate denounced as"obscene." The later section about his life in Chicago and experience with theCommunist party was not published until 1977 under the title .Wright's publishers in 1945 had only wanted the story of his life in the South and cutwhat followed about his life in the North. There have been numerous biographies of Wright,but all must begin with , Wright's personal and emotional account of hischildhood and adolescence in the Jim Crow South. In a famous passage in the autobiographythat has bothered critics and set Wright apart from the African-American sense ofcommunity, he asserts the "cultural barrenness of black life": ". . . I used to mull over the strange absence of real kindness in Negroes, howunstable was our tenderness, how lacking in genuine passion we were, how void of greathope, how timid our joy, how bare our traditions, how hollow our memories, how lacking wewere in those intangible sentiments that bind man to man, and how shallow was even ourdespair." He found an "unconscious irony" in the idea that "Negroesled so passional an existence": "I saw that what had been taken for ouremotional strength was our negative confusions, our flights, our fears, our frenzy underpressure." Statements like these are contradicted by others that describe a caringcommunity. For example, when Wright's mother suffers a paralytic stroke, "theneighbors nursed my mother day and night, fed us and washed our clothes," and Wrightadmits to being "ashamed that so often in my life I had to be fed by strangers."
