    Set in the 1950’s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin’s now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart.

    Mike Sauerman says: "Great Classic - Can't Go Wrong!"
    "Narrator's Poor French Ruins This Book"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A reader who could read the French names, places and frequent French phrases!
    This is a beautiful story, set in Paris and populated significantly by French characters and French speakers. It is a crime that the narrator cannot pronounce the French. This is worse than merely distracting; it destroys an essential part of the book.


    What didn’t you like about Dan Butler’s performance?

    He butchers the French names and phrases. It is often incomprehensible due to his poor pronunciation.
