Description


Set in the contemporary Paris of American  expatraites, liasons, and violence, a young man finds  himself caught between desire and conventional  morality. James Baldwin's brilliant narrative delves  into the mystery of loving with a sharp, probing  imagination, and he creates a moving, highly  controversial story of death and passion that reveals the  unspoken complexities of the heart.

About the Author


James Baldwin was the author of Go Tell It on the Mountain and The Fire Next Time, among other books.

Praise for Giovanni's Room…


"A young  American involved with both a woman and a man...  Baldwin writes of these matters with unusual candor  and yet with such dignity and intensity." --  The New York Times
