Modern Library's 100 Best English-Language Novels of the Twentieth Century

James Baldwin’s stunning first novel is now an American classic. With startling realism that brings Harlem and the black experience vividly to life, this is a work that touches the heart with emotion while it stimulates the mind with its narrative style, symbolism, and excoriating vision of racism in America. Moving through time from the rural South to the northern ghetto, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy’s discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Go Tell It on the Mountain is an unsurpassed portrayal of human beings caught up in a dramatic struggle and of a society confronting inevitable change.

Review Quotes

“Narrator Adam Lazarre-White delivers a perfect presentation. He accurately captures accents of Harlem and of the Deep South but avoids stereotyping.”

Library Journal (audio review)

“Since point of view and time continually shift, [Adam Lazarre-White’s] narration helps listeners remain focused. Baldwin’s rich description, perhaps the best part of his writing, is enhanced by this thoughtful delivery…The novel is a painful, though vitally important, look at black life in a less familiar era by a distinguished African American author.”
