Summary "Set mainly in Greenwich Village and Harlem, James Baldwin's 1962 novel, Another Country, is a groundbreaking work of sexual, racial and artistic passions that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality. In her volume in Ig's acclaimed Bookmarked series, award winning author and essayist Kim McLarin shares her appreciation of this seminal novel, demonstrating how its myriad themes-- including relations between men and women (gay and straight, Black and white), the meaning of creativity, and the ecstasy and pain of love--mirror many of her own life experiences. In this critical and personal examination, we come to better understand a pioneering novel and writer, as well as the role race, class and gender have played in Kim's life, and by extension, contemporary American society"--Back cover.
