Description

'Few, it seems to me, have driven their words with such passion' Guardian How our earliest experiences can shape our destiny is the theme that runs like a thread of revelation through these extraordinary stories.

They explore the roots of love, of murder and of racial conflict, from the child in 'The Rockpile' who can never be forgiven by his God-fearing father for his illegitimacy to the loneliness of a young black girl in love with a white man who, she knows, will leave her in 'Come Out of the Wilderness' and the horrifying story of the initiation of a racist as a man remembers his parents taking him to see the mutilation and murder of a black man in 'Going to Meet the Man'.

In them Baldwin unlocks the concepts of history and prejudice and probes beneath the skin to the soul.
