--"The New York Times"

"Absorbing...[with] immediate emotional impact."
--"The Washington Post"

"Mr. Baldwin has taken a very special theme and treated it with great artistry and restraint."
--"Saturday Review"

"Exciting...a book that belongs in the top rank of fiction."
--"The Atlantic"

"Violent, excruciating beauty."
--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"To be James Baldwin is to touch on so many hidden places in Europe, America, the Negro, the white man --to be forced to understand so much." --Alfred Kazin
"This author retains a place in an extremely select group; that composed of the few genuinely indispensable American writers." --"Saturday Review
""He has not himself lost access to the sources of his being --which is what makes him read and awaited by perhaps a wider range of people than any other major American writer." --"The Nation
