Tietoja tekijästä

James Baldwin was born on August 2, 1924, in New York. Baldwin's father was a pastor who subjected his children to poverty, abuse, and religious fanaticism. As a result, many of Baldwin's recurring themes, such as alienation and rejection, are attributable to his upbringing. Living the life of a näytä lisää starving artist, Baldwin went through numerous jobs, including dishwasher, office boy, factory worker, and waiter. In 1948, he moved to France, where much work originated. Baldwin published Go Tell It on the Mountain in 1953. A largely autobiographical work, it tells of the religious awakening of a fourteen-year-old. In addition to his childhood experiences, his experiences as a black man and a homosexual provided inspiration for such works as Giovanni's Room, Nobody Knows My Name, and Another Country. Baldwin holds a distinguished place in American history as one of the foremost writers of both black and gay literature. He was an active participant in the Civil Rights movement. Baldwin succumbed to cancer on December 1, 1987. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

This was pretty good. It was more factual and honest than most books on the subject, and I actually feel like he made a lot of good points with his anecdotal evidence. He told a compelling story, and I generally enjoyed reading it. Worth reading if the plight of the black man interests you (and general injustices, which I feel he alludes to often).

Unforgettable short stories that paint a portrait of mid 20th century race relations . This portrait, stark and difficult to look at, is richly hewn from the thoughts and interactions of the characters. Some stories were sad, such as "Sonny's Blues", others surprising, such as "Man Child", and others, disturbing ...most notably "Going to Meet the Man".
This collection may have themes and images that will sear your brain make you shudder, but it will also make you think and search your soul.

I just didn’t feel as deeply as I thought I would about this book. As a queer person I do understand the complexity of what he was going through with choosing but overall he just kind of seemed like a dick and all the men seemed to hate women. Just not a vibe for me.
