So controversial was The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God when it first appeared in 1932 that it provoked public outcry with Shaw decried as a blasphemer. Today, it remains a surprisingly irreverent depiction of the universal search for God. This brilliantly sardonic allegory showcases some of Shaw's most unorthodox thoughts on religion and race. Includes an afterword by the author and the original illustrations.
