Praise

“If you’re hoping to find holiday reading that is as educational as it is entertaining, look no further than [this] new book of discussions with legendary intellectual James Baldwin.”
Vogue.com

“Resonant… Stellar interviews.”
Flavorwire

”Of particular interest to those who seek to better understand Baldwin’s biography and his complex and often contradictory legacy as a trailblazing figure in gay literary history.”
Lambda Literary

”One of many reminders that Baldwin’s observations on race, sexuality, and society remain relevant — and that the voice in which he made them remains one of the most compelling in all of American letters.”
Biographile

“The great James Baldwin has his turn in the also great series from Melville House.”
Largehearted Boy, WORD Bookstores’ Books of the Week

Praise for James Baldwin:
“Jimmy Baldwin was the creator of contemporary American speech even before Americans could dig that.”
Amiri Baraka

“I am completely indebted to Jimmy Baldwin’s prose. It liberated me as a writer.”
Toni Morrison

“Baldwin’s way of seeing, his clarity, precision, and eloquence are unique . . . He manages to be concrete, particular . . . yet also transcendent, arching above the immediacy of an occasion or crisis. He speaks as great black gospel music speaks, through metaphor, parable, rhythm.”
USA Today

“[Baldwin is] among the most penetrating and perceptive of American thinkers.”
The New Republic
