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. Maxwell (Washington U in St. Louis). 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. McKay’s late-Harlem Renaissance novel lends itself to several contemporary critical concerns: queer, disability, proletarian, black transnational, and New Modernist studies among them.
