Staff Reviews

A raw, bloody, teeth-baring powerhouse of a novel-- Baldwin spares us no punches in his desperate vision of post-war New York and the boozing, swinging, quarreling cast of artists and dreamers at the story's core. Bubbling and boiling away with racial, sexual, and socioeconomic tensions, there's a white-hot current of relentlessness that, frankly, makes this pretty much unputdownable. --Todd

— From Staff Picks - Todd


Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions--sexual, racial, political, artistic--that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime.
