Product description


A straight-from-the-shoulder writer, writing about the troubled problems of this troubled earth with an illuminating intensity that should influence for the better all who ponder on the things books say -- Langston Hughes ― The New York Times

Powerful . . . I wish I could press this book into the hands of every American - actually, every human. -- Celeste Ng ― Guardian

Edgy and provocative . . . entertainingly satirical -- Robert McCrum ― Guardian

A classic . . . Take the words out of the 1950s, when they were published, and they could apply to the women in pink hats, the scientists, the Black Lives Matter activists, the climate-change believers and the LGBTQ-rights supporters who have flooded the streets of Washington this year ― Washington Post

A classic ... In a divided America, James Baldwin's fiery critiques reverberate anew ― Washington Post

Cemented his reputation as a cultural seer ... Notes of a Native Son endures as his defining work, and his greatest ― Time --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Born in Harlem in 1924, James Baldwin was a novelist, essayist, play­wright, poet, social critic, and the author of more than twenty books. His first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain, appeared in 1953 to excellent reviews, and his essay col­lection The Fire Next Time was a bestseller that made him an influential figure in the civil rights movement. Baldwin spent many years in France, where he moved to escape the racism and homophobia of the United States. He died in 1987. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
