Invisible Man, Ellison's only published novel, is one of the acknowledged classics of twentieth-century fiction. Published in 1952 and modeled on Ellison himself, the novel portrays a young black man in search of his own identity.

The short story "Sonny's Blues," (1957) by Ellison's contemporary, James Baldwin, tells the story of two African-American brothers in New York City.
