Rating: 5 out of 5

This is the first James Baldwin I’ve read. And I chose it because of it being made into a film. I haven’t seen the film, and won’t, I suspect, for a while. This book is dark, and descriptive. The language is beautiful, and poetic at times. There is a piece about time and the use of the word time that was wonderful to read aloud, and to hear spoken. I’ll be looking out for more James Baldwin books to read.
