Product 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.

Review quote

"If Van Gogh was our 19th-century artist-saint, James Baldwin is our 20th-century one." --Michael Ondaatje "A young American involved with both a woman and a man...Baldwin writes of these matters with unusual candor and yet with such dignity and intensity." --"The New York Times" "Absorbing...[with] immediate emotional impact." --"The Washington Post" "Mr. Baldwin has taken a very special theme and treated it with great artistry and restraint." --"Saturday Review" "Exciting...a book that belongs in the top rank of fiction." --"The Atlantic" "Violent, excruciating beauty." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
