Giovanni's Room Lib/E (Compact Disc)
There are very few masters of the English language, and James Baldwin happens to be one of them. He also happens to be one of the greatest believers in love and its power to liberate. This book is a rendition of love, without the cliché ending of a romance novel. For any reader who still believes in the silence of prose, and desires to renew their faith in love.— Guy
Set in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality.
With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart.
