Ralph Ellison, the author of The Invisible Man (338.1), didn't  
publish a second novel in his lifetime. But he left literally  
thousands of pages of manuscript, notes, and plain scribblings of a  
second novel. Two college types -- including the guy who cobbled  
together "Juneteenth" --  have put the novel together for a Modern  
Library edition to be published next year. You can read the really  
fascinating article about Ellison, the struggle to assemble the  
pieces into a cogent whole, and the moving biography of one of the  
editors, here:

I recommend it.
