Description:
New York: The Dial Press, 1974. First edition of Baldwin's fifth novel, a love story set in Harlem in the early 1970s. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "For Ethan Reinhard, Thank you. James Baldwin." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Lynn Braswell.

Basis for the film directed by Barry Jenkins, starring Kiki Layne, Stephan James, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Michael Beach, Dave Franco, Diego Luna,… Read more
