Staff Reviews


Inviting us into lives of a group of five at varying crossroads in their lives, Baldwin gifts us with an impressively mature novel about the price we pay for refusing to grapple with our demons. As Baldwin's characters undergo various psychic, artistic, and sexual awakenings, we, as readers, are called to an awakening of our own.

— Malik

Description


From one of the most important American novelists of the twentieth century—a novel of sexual, racial, political, artistic passions, set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France. • “Brilliant and fiercely told.” —The New York Times

Stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, this book depicts men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
