Publisher Description

Published in 1962, this is an emotionally intense novel of love, hatred, race, and America in the 1950s.

Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country tells the story of the suicide of jazz musician Rufus Scott and the friends who search for an understanding of his life and death, discovering uncomfortable truths about themselves along the way. It is a novel of passions—sexual, racial, political, artistic—that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. In a small set of friends, Baldwin imbues the best and worst intentions of liberal America in the 1950s.

Another country

Excellent writing. Once again James Baldwin captures the essences of the entire realm of the city and the black man's place in it. He brillantly puts emphasis upon the many conflicts offered up to humanity by life's contradictions and pitfallls through
race, love, and jeolousness towards mankind by mankind. Al Williams,II
