Review

"One of the best books Baldwin has ever written perhaps the best of all." "The Philadelphia Inquirer" A moving, painful story, so vividly human and so obviously based on reality that it strikes us as timeless. "Joyce Carol Oates""If Van Gogh was our nineteenth-century artist-saint, James Baldwin is our twentiethth-century one." " Michael Ondaatje""Striking and particularly haunting. . . . A beauty, especially in its rendering of youthful passion." "Cosmopolitan""A major work of black American fiction...His best novel yet, even Baldwin's most devoted readers are due to be stunned by it." "The New Republic""Emotional dynamite...a powerful assault upon the cynicism that seems today to drain our determination to confront deep social problems." "Library Journal""A moving, painful story, so vividly human and so obviously based on reality that it strikes us as timeless." "The New York Times Book Review""
