James Arthur Baldwin (August 2, 1924 – December 1, 1987) was an American novelist, playwright, and activist. His essays, as collected in Notes of a Native Son (1955), explore intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-20th-century North America. Some of Baldwin's essays are book-length, including The Fire Next Time (1963), No Name in the Street (1972), and The Devil Finds Work (1976)
Vintage Baldwin book. He surprises me every time with his insight and intelligence. I hadn't read any of his essays, and they did not disappoint
Vintage Baldwin book. I hadn't read any of his essays, and they did not disappoint. In his discussions of race in America I find as important and insightful a perspective as any we're getting from the news today - and, somehow, unfortunately, his perspectives are still as relevant. The fiction in this collection - Sonny's Blues and an excerpt from Another Country - is beautiful and consuming and layered and rich, as I have James Baldwin.

Vintage Baldwin includes the short story Sonny's Blues ; the galvanizing civil rights examination My Dungeon Shook: Letter to My Nephew on the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Emancipation ; the essays Fifth Avenue, Uptown: A Letter from Harlem, The Discovery of What It Means to Be an American, and Nobody Knows My Name: A Letter from the South ; and excerpts from the novel. 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.
Mountain, Baldwin said, is the book I had to write if I was ever going to write anything else. Go Tell It On The Mountain, first published in 1953, is Baldwin's first major work, a novel that has established itself as an American classic. A national bestseller when it first appeared in 1963, The Fire Next Time galvanized the nation and gave passionate voice to the emerging civil rights movement. At once a powerful evocation of James Baldwin's early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice, the book is an intensely personal and provocative document.
One of the few genuinely indispensable writers.
