Another Country is one of the novels that shaped my life. I was fortunate to have found an author as brilliant as James Baldwin at a young age.

Julia PDX, November 1, 2009 (view all comments by Julia PDX)
James Baldwin's prose is stunning and brutal, sometimes heartbreaking, and always true to his experience in our world. In Another Country, Baldwin courageously explores themes of race, gender, class and sexuality as he tells the story of a black musician's life in New York and the communities in which he finds himself. The characters that populate the pages of Another Country are nuanced, and the plot masterfully illuminates complex systems of oppression without seeming even a little contrived. This is one of my favorite books of all time.
