To be James Baldwin is to touch on so many hidden places in Europe, America, the Negro, the white man to be forced to understand so much. Alfred Kazin
This author retains a place in an extremely select group; that composed of the few genuinely indispensable American writers. "Saturday Review
" 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. "The Nation
" He is thought-provoking, tantalizing, irritating, abusing and amusing. And he uses words as the sea uses waves, to flow and beat, advance and retreat, rise and take a bow in disappearing . . . the thought becomes poetry and the poetry illuminates thought. Langston Hughes
