They were best friends. They were collaborators, literary gadflies, and champions of the common people. They were the leading lights of the Harlem Renaissance. Zora Neale Hurston, the author of Their Eyes Were Watching God, and Langston Hughes, the author of "The Negro Speaks of Rivers" and "Let America Be America Again", first met in 1925, at a great gathering of black and white literati, and they fascinated each other.

I've always enjoyed the works of Hughes and Neale Hurston, especially Hurston after I was cast in an orginal play when I was 20 entitled "Zora", written by Bill Rodgers. I knew that both Zora and Langston were friends but never knew this close. This book gives an eye opening account into each of their lives both together and separate. You will learn so much about these to icons as well as many others they ran with in this time period.
