The question many people and engineers have asked recently, in board rooms and on the street, is this: If Donald Barthelme were to happen today-if he were to burst onto the scene in 2004 or 2005 or thereabouts-what would become of him? What kind of reception would he receive? The answer is that people would be curious. Then they would probably be more or less dismissive. They might even club him in the street, using clubs meant for seals.

Just as I expected, literature at its finest. I'd never read a James Baldwin book before but I knew I'd be in for a well written and articulate reading. I'll not describe the story as any Baldwin book is a classic and stands on its own. However, I did wish for a more fulfilling conclusion. Who am I to question the mind of the great Baldwin though.

Very good book. I enjoy James Baldwin's works. The end is more of a cliffhanger. I initially downloaded the e-book. I did not realize I was at the end of the book and purchased the hard copy as well.

A classic by Baldwin that tells a story as true today as then -- which makes it almost doubly moving since one wonders when progress will ever be made. Some people think that Baldwin is misogynous and that the book reflects this; I understand their argument but did not read it that way.

I tried to get every friend to read this when I was younger. I bought it to experience it again as a mature woman.

Purchased this book for my grand daughter, in middle school and she emailed me how much she enjoyed it. I suggested she start a book exchange with her classmates to give others the opportunity to share books she liked and she theirs. She thought it was a great idea and implemented. Bravo to middle school readers.

Baldwin does an excellent job humanizing the displaced bodies trapped behind bars. Thought Tish and Fonny we are able to see just how the prison industrial complex attempts to destroy the will of not only those who are incarnated but also those that love them.

My first James Baldwin novel & I want to read more!
Captivating, special and intimate. Baldwin is a genius. The character development is rich. I feel like I know everyone personally. The love story touches on key societal issues like race relations, prison, and family dynamics.
