Early novels and stories : Go tell it on the mountain ; Giovanni's room ; Another country ; Going to meet the man by James Baldwin( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novelist, essayist, and public intellectual, James Baldwin was one of the most brilliant and provocative literary figures of the postwar era, and one of the greatest African-American writers of this century. A self-described "transatlantic commuter" who spent much of his life in France, Baldwin joined a cosmopolitan sophistication to a fierce engagement with social issues. Early Novels and Stories presents the novels and short stories that established Baldwin's reputation as a writer who fused unblinking realism and rare verbal eloquence. His first novel, Go Tell It on the Mountain (1953), tells the story, rooted in Baldwin's own experience, of a preacher's son coming of age in 1930's Harlem. Giovanni's Room (1956) is a searching, and in its day controversial, treatment of the tragic self-delusions of a young American expatriate at war with his own homosexuality. Another Country (1962), a wide-ranging exploration of America's racial and sexual boundaries, depicts the suicide of a gifted jazz musician and its ripple effect on those who knew him. Going To Meet the Man (1965) collects Baldwin's short fiction, including the masterful "Sonny's Blues," the unforgettable portrait of a jazz musician struggling with drug addiction in which Baldwin came closest to defining his goal as a writer
Jazz by Toni Morrison( Book )

63 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The deep bluesy sadness of this novel wails out of the pages as expressively as a saxophone," writes Digby Diehl of Toni Morrison's 1993 novel. Set in 1926, at the height of the Harlem renaissance, it follows the lives of the Joe and Violet Vace, who have moved from the South to escape the hardships of segregation. They find a city throbbing with the music that represents both artistic freedom and moral decline. Jazz is story of passion, jealousy, murder and redemption, of sex and spirituality, slavery, and liberation, country and city. It is a novel about rapture and anguish of being male and female and, above all, human. Like the music of its title, it is a dazzling lyric play on elemental themes, as soaring and daring as a Charlie Parker solo, as heartbreaking as the blues

What moves at the margin : selected nonfiction by Toni Morrison( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Morrison's novels on race and identity have secured her literary reputation, her essays, speeches and reviews offer insights into family, history, other writers and politics. The pieces span from 1971, when Morrison was an editor at Random House, to 2002, the year she won the Nobel Prize, and range from book introductions to thoughts on the nature of writing and reflections on 9/11. In a 1971 New York Times Magazine article, Morrison bluntly observes that black women's response to the nascent feminist movement is distrust. They look at white women and see them as the enemy. Following Toni Cade Bambara's death in 1995, Morrison recalled her friend's writing gift: Bambara is a writer's writer, an editor's writer, a reader's writer... nothing distracts from the sheer satisfaction her story-telling provides. In an address delivered to the American Writers Congress in 1981, Morrison proclaims, [W]e don't need any more writers as solitary heroes. We need a heroic writers' movement. Denard's judicious selections offer insights into the themes that are the rich ground for Morrison's fiction
