Carey, Manchild was a Harlem primer for me too, along with Daddy Was a Number Runner by Louise Meriwether. It's a YA novel, but still one of my favorites across genres of all time.
Then I went on to read several books about the Harlem Renaissance, and by writers from that era. A bit less naive by then, though. ;-)
Did you read Claude Brown's subsequent novel, The Children of Ham?
