Description

‘A masterwork… an almost unbearable, tumultuous, blood-pounding experience’ Washinton Post

When Another Country appeared in 1962, it caused a literary sensation. James Baldwin’s masterly story of desire, hatred and violence opens with the unforgettable character of Rufus Scott, a scavenging Harlem jazz musician adrift in New York. Self-destructive, bad and brilliant, he draws us into a Bohemian underworld pulsing with heat, music and sex, where desperate and dangerous characters betray, love and test each other to the limit.

‘In Another Country, Baldwin created the essential American drama of the century’ Colm Tóibìn
