THE LAST KID LEFT by Rosecrans Baldwin

THE AMEN CORNER by James Baldwin
Released: June 12, 1967

"Symphonic in structure, mixing religious and sexual motifs, encompassing various shades of characters and situations against the background of a boat trip up the Hudson, 'The Outing' is memorable in every sense; funny, sad, colorful, it is a triumphant performance."
With the exception of "The Man Child," a macabre, faintly Lawrentian study of repressed love between two white men in the rural South, all of Baldwin's tales here deal in one form or another with the Negro problem. Read full book review >
