Summary

This stunningly personal document and extraordinary history of the turbulent sixties and early seventies displays James Baldwin’s fury and despair more deeply than any of his other works.

In vivid detail he remembers the Harlem childhood that shaped his early consciousness, the later events that scored his heart with pain—the murders of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, his sojourns in Europe and in Hollywood, and his return to the American South to confront a violent America face-to-face.

Review Quotes

“If Van Gogh was our nineteenth-century artist-saint, James Baldwin [is] our twentieth-century one.”

Michael Ondaatje, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author

“More eloquent than W. E. B. Du Bois, more penetrating than Richard Wright…It contains truth that cannot be denied.”

Atlantic Monthly

“Characteristically beautiful…He has not himself lost access to the sources of his being—which is what makes him read and awaited by perhaps a wider range of people than any other major American writer.”

Nation

“Baldwin’s 1972 volume is a right-between-the-eyes commentary on American racism in the 1950s and 1960s, capped by the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and other civil-rights figures. Still as powerful and important as the day it was written.”
