Baldwin, James
No Name in the Street.
Michael Joseph, London, 1972. First British edition of Baldwin's classic collection of nonfiction writings. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by James Baldwin on the front free endpaper. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket photograph by Mark Gerson. This stunningly personal document and extraordinary history of the turbulent sixties and early seventies displays James Baldwin's fury and despair more deeply than any of his other works. In vivid detail he remembers the Harlem childhood that shaped his early conciousness, the later events that scored his heart with pain--the murders of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, his sojourns in Europe and in Hollywood, and his retum to the American South to confront a violent America face-to-face. "More eloquent than W. E. B. DuBois, more penetrating than Richard Wright. It contains truth that cannot be denied" (The Atlantic Monthly). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books [United States]
