[Review of The Conjure Woman]

The Conjure Woman

"The Conjure Woman." by Charles W. Chesnutt, is a collection of tales in Southern negro dialect, which have both the merit of novelty and the charm of originality. They are stories of folks being "hoodooed" by the "conjure woman," and of the strange pranks they were made to play. The sketches are well told and will make good summer reading.
