Set in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. With a sharp, probing imaginatio, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creating a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart. 169p.
Baldwin's 1956 novel, his second, was daring for its time, depicting a young man deep into Paris's second expatriate movement following World War II as he grapples with his sexual identity. He is drawn both to his fiancée and to a male Italian bartender with whom he begins an affair. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
