The blurb of this 1963 edition of James Baldwin’s Another Country (1962) describes the novel ‘as born out of intense fury, rage and, above all, compassion’. Baldwin (1924-87), an African American writer brought up in Harlem, New York, often addressed the complex social issues of race and sexuality in his writing. Written at a time of great social turmoil in the United States, this controversial novel was a best seller. It tells the tale of a group of people living in Greenwich Village and explores the relationships ‘between black and white, between man and woman, [and] between man and man’. This book was purchased in 2010.
