Product description

Review

Riveting . . . part of Baldwin's enduring power is that he was not a political thinker. He was interested in the soul's dark spaces much more than in the body politic. (Colm Toibin Telegraph)

The great poet-prophet of the civil rights movement ... his seminal work (Guardian)

Sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle . . . all presented in searing, brilliant prose (The New York Times Book Review)

Baldwin writes with great passion ... it reeks of truth, as the ghettoes of New York and London, Chicago and Manchester reek of our hypocrisy (Sunday Times)

A true prophet . . . his thought and its utterance are nothing less than majestical (Mario Puzo The New York Times)

About the Author

Born in Harlem in 1924, Baldwin had an early career as a teenage preacher. He lived in Paris from 1948-1956 and his first novels, the autobiographical GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN and GIOVANNI'S ROOM established him as a promising novelist and anticipated some of the themes of his later works, such as racism and sexuality. He became a prominent spokesperson for racial equality, especially during the civil rights movement. He lived in France during his last years. Baldwin died in 1987.
