I strongly suggest (though it's your money) that you give Himes's Harlem novels the full treatment. They make up a great body of work.

*************** I'm going to take your advice and start racking them up. I read Cotton Comes to Harlem a few years back and liked it, and my interest was further piqued by Haut's description of them in his book. The trade paperbacks that came out several years back are really nice (Black Lizard turned into Vintage?) I'm hoping I can find them.

I've got a critical book on his work, but I don't want to read it before I get a chance to read a few of them. I'm not home so I can't say what it is.
