Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

Another Country
James Baldwin


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.
