about this book

Here, in a monumental saga of love and rage, Baldwin goes back to Harlem, to a church of his groundbreaking novel Go Tell It On the Mountain, to the homosexual passion of Giovanni’s Room, and to the political fire that enflames his nonfiction work.
“A work of passion... Glimpses of family life in Harlem, rapturous music-making in the churches, movements of uneasiness in even the most casual meetings between whites and blacks–scenes that Baldwin seems preternaturally gifted in understanding.”–The New York Times Book Review
