In February 2020, Penguin Random House will publish for the first time Claude McKay’s never-released revolutionary novel, Romance in Marseille, written circa 1929-1933, edited by Gary Holcomb (Ohio U) and William J.

A “Black Spine” series Penguin Classics paperback, Romance in Marseille will be the publisher’s Black History Month selection and centerpiece of the 2020 catalogue.
