James Baldwin, Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Vintage Books & Anchor Books. James Baldwin’s groundbreaking novel about love and the fear of love is set among the bohemian bars and nightclubs of 1950s Paris

James Baldwin, Saint-Paul-de-Vence. James Baldwin’s groundbreaking novel about love and the fear of love is set among the bohemian bars and nightclubs of 1950s Paris. David is a young American expatriate who has just proposed marriage to his girlfriend, Hella. While she is away on a trip, David meets a bartender named Giovanni to whom he is drawn in spite of himself.

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.

James Baldwin (1924-1987) was a novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic, and one of America's foremost writers. His essays, such as "Notes of a Native Son" (1955), explore palpable yet unspoken intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in y America. A Harlem, New York, native, he primarily made his home in the south of France

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.

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the great modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions.“One of the few genuinely indispensable writers.” —The Saturday ReviewIn his internationally acclaimed novels, short stories, plays and essays, James Baldwin was and remains a powerfully prophetic voice in the American literary landscape, fearlessly brooding upon issues such as race, sex, politics, and art. His literary achievement is a lasting legacy about what it means to be American.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 Another Country and the play The Amen Corner.
  • Excellent book for those who are discovering the writings of this writer.

  • Loved it! I plan to buy the books of certain pieces featured, in particular The Amen Corner.

  • This is a great book, the only reason why I didn't put 5 stars is because the condition in which the book was in. There was annotations from past renters. But it was still readable

  • Still reading this. Has works inside I never knew of

  • Great book by a great author. Great condition. Quick ship time

  • Baldwin is a great write and I recommend his work to everybody. Filler words Filler words Filler words Filler words

  • Baldwin saved my life. In my mid thrities I began to read Baldwin. I started with Tell Me How Long the Train Been's Gone. I have read everything he has ever written-plays, critical essays, novels. I buy multiple copies to be sure I have them to give to people who visit me and pay attention to my library. I have a first edition of The Fire Next Time. He should be mandatory reading in America in High Schools and Colleges. He obviously writes about race in America, but beyond that he speaks to the actualization of the individual, the moral imperative of our times. His voice sings and resonates truth in a way that often stops you dead and you must re-read a phrase or a passage again and again to absorb the brilliance of his ability to articulate what we know deeply, without our own poetry to express deep longing, pain and passion. He is an author's author. For the simplist of stories I recommend, If Beale Street Could Talk. For social expose I suggest Nobody Knows my Name. If you have never read Baldwin, I must say, if not not know then when? Until America comes to terms with the reality of the identity of the black man in our culture we will never be free, or be able to know ourselves.

  • Of the 8 selections featured in this reader, I found 2 to be beyond comparison. "Sonny's Blues" and "Another Country."
    Sonny's Blues had simply an *amazing* opening--one of those opening paragraphs that fully pulls you right in. The story itself was very simplistic and...well, just good.
    Also, I really enjoyed Another Country for the pure progression of events. It took place as a larger story (which it is), yet was self-contained within its own right.
    As far as the other selections go, I found it rather hit and miss. The first few were rather short and enjoyable. Others seemed redundant in their message.
