Publisher's Summary

The stark grief of a brother mourning a brother opens this novel with a stunning, unforgettable experience. Here, in a monumental saga of love and rage, Baldwin goes back to Harlem, to the church of his groundbreaking novel Go Tell It on the Mountain, to the homosexual passion of Giovanni's Room, and to the political fire that inflames his nonfiction work.

Here, too, the story of gospel singer Arthur Montana and his family becomes both a journey into another country of the soul and senses - and a living contemporary history of black struggle in this land.

©1978, 1979 James Baldwin (P)2016 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

    "Excellent"

    This is the best book on Audible. And trust me I have listened to close to 1,000 and I hardly ever review.

    Story
    "Riveting love story and the evolution of self."

    I think this love story really spoke to self awareness. The homosexuality peace was almost just a backdrop. James Baldwin's Vivid accounting made you feel like you were there in Harlem or Paris
