This study provides an engaging overview and clear analysis of the fiction, non-fiction and drama of African-American writer James Baldwin ( 1924-1987). Whilst giving close attention to Baldwin’s popular works such as Go Tell it on the Mountain and Another Country  it also explores the important but less well known themes and texts including the use of the blues, masculinity, race and sexuality.


Baldwin's place in the classroom has been well served by Douglas Field...this lucid introductory guide does justice to the multiple new Baldwins being brought to light'

Times Literary Supplement



James Baldwin offers succinct, insightful readings of both Baldwin's fiction and nonfiction...Field's readings give readers a  generous sense of the wider critical landscape without foreclosing other imperative perspectives. The bibliography and appendices of this carefully researched book's conclusion are a particular gift and resource for both those approaching Baldwin for the first time as well as for those of us called to him again and again.
