Great conversation - thank you for bringing this topic alive. I relate so much to Prof. Callahan's experience reading Invisible Man. It was a lightning bolt for - changed how I thought about myself in relation to the world, and how I thought about other people. Although the book is about isolation, amazingly, it ends up opening up the part of each of us we're too insecure, afraid, embarassed to reveal to anyone else.
Is it possible Ellison ended up exploring/revealing so much in Invisible Man that there just wasn't more - or not on as cohesive and profound a way as in IM - for him to create?
