Set in the contemporary Paris of American  expatraites, liasons, and violence, a young man finds  himself caught between desire and conventional  morality. James Baldwin's brilliant narrative delves  into the mystery of loving with a sharp, probing  imagination, and he creates a moving, highly  controversial story of death and passion that reveals the  unspoken complexities of the heart.

Praise For Giovanni's Room

"A young  American involved with both a woman and a man...  Baldwin writes of these matters with unusual candor  and yet with such dignity and intensity." --  The New York Times
