Baldwin tries hard and at times achieves that "out there in oblivion" feeling of a Faulkner work. The title character is a memorable wretch, and there are some other instances of solid character development.

Stories are told from different angles and so you have to reason out your own version of events. It's not the least bit confusing, however; because Baldwin is too good of a story teller for that.
