Publisher's Summary

James Baldwin's Nobody Knows My Name records the last months of this famed American writer's 10-year self-exile in Europe, his return to America and to Harlem, and his first trip south at the time of the school integration battles. It contains Baldwin's controversial and intimate profiles of Norman Mailer, Richard Wright, and Ingmar Bergman. And it explores such varied themes as the relations between blacks and whites, the role of blacks in America and in Europe, and the question of sexual identity.

greatly entertaining and smart!!

Mr. Baldwin did not dissapoint in the biography, I find it greatly entertaining, well organizied, smart and done it with great taste. This audio book will not dissapoint in the slighter because even though it was written in the 1950s the subject matter still relevant today. It open a window to the life of black americans view from inside out and backward

More Notes of a Native Son

Baldwin at his best, beautifully read. James Baldwin’s essays are essential reading for any critically conscious American reader. These readings are clear, engaging, and a pleasure to listen to.
