The early half of the 20th century probably produced some of the best artists we've ever seen. But what seems to be the case among the many artists of that time, is the struggle to find balance between creativity, love, family, social conditions and current events and life itself. A man gifted in many ways, but in constant turmoil struggling to find peace and happiness in a life filled with anything but the two. Like most of his time, his life was a roller coaster ride and will take you from the streets of Harlem to his travels around the world. If you want to know about the life of the one of the best writers of the 20th century, this is the place to start.
This is an okay bio. Disorganized in the telling though Leeming, who was close to Baldwin, has great affection for this great writer. So a mix of bio and appreciation. Minor but worth reading.
A classic and trueBaldwi. Here you see his naked soul, bared in what would become his life philosophy and hope
