The Street

by Ann Petry

THE STREET tells the poignant, often heartbreaking story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to raise her son 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.

First Edition Identification

The first edition of The Street by Ann Petry was published by Houghton Mifflin in 1946. The dust jacket has a price of $2.50. The back of the dust jacket has the author's bio and a small photograph. The light grey cloth boards have a stamped illustration of a Harlem street scene on the front and back.
