The Foxes of Harrow (Delta Diamond Library) - Frank Yerby WHY IT'S ON MY TO-READ: First best seller by an African American. Considered risqué at the time (1946). Unlike Gone With The Wind, apparently a truer representation of the slavery, racial and gender inequality, and raucousness of the Antibellum South. Ultimately, the book became a 1947 Oscar-nominated film of the same name starring Rex Harrison and Maureen O'Hara.
