Staff Reviews


Wrenching and beautiful, Baldwin's second novel explores the hefty price of self-deception. As told by David, the narrator of this austere story, readers witness how the severe cowardice of one man bears ruin upon everyone around him. A must-read for any fan of Garth Greenwell or Brandon Taylor.

Description


Set in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality.With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart.
