Happy 88th birthday, James Baldwin. Baldwin (1924-1987) was a novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic, and one of America’s foremost writers. His essays explore palpable yet unspoken intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, most notably in mid-twentieth-century America. As an openly gay man, he became increasingly outspoken in condemning discrimination against lesbian and gay people. Notes of a Native Son, his first nonfiction collection of essays, will be re-released on November 20 and will be available in ebook format for the first time!
