Another important—though oft-neglected—writer who was a member of the Harlem Renaissance was Dorothy West. Known largely as a writer of short stories West finally gained national attention in 1995 with the publication of her second novel, The Wedding. This inspired the re-publication of some of her earlier work in The Richer, the Poorer: Stories, Sketches and Reminiscences (1995).
