Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Baldwin came to be known for his novels on sexual and personal identity, and sharp essays on civil-rights struggle in the United States. He shot to fame with his novel Go tell it on The Mountain, a story of hidden sins, guilt, and religious torments. The book explores these recurrent themes of social injustices, prejudices, and homosexual liaisons in his works Giovanni’s Room, The Fire Next Time, No Name in the Street, and The Devil Finds Work.
