Summary The Street ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ann Petry · 6 Summary Summary The Street Rk The Street was Ann Petry's first novel a beloved bestseller with than a million copies in print Its haunting tale still resonates today. I m hesitant to give this four stars for a couple of reasons one because I know it was flawed in certain important ways but to me the stars have to do with how much I personally enjoyed a book not how technically good it was so I think that s okay The main reason I m afraid of singing this book s praises too loudly is that I really loved it and being able to see its problems and knowing other people might not think it s good really hurts my feelings I feel protective of this book and it upsets me to think about other people maligning it So please don t read this unless you re going to like it The Street is Ann Petry s 1946 novel about single mother Lutie Johnson s efforts to raise her son and escape poverty while living on 116h Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in Harlem Young black beautiful po
