There is some very powerful and daring writing in this story of a black musician's struggle with depression, friends and family in 1960s America. Very much ahead of its time.

This might be Baldwin's best novel, edging out Go Tell It On the Mountain, Giovanni's Room, and If Beale Street Could Talk.

Nobody interested in American Literature or history should go without this book. It's very powerfully written, and brutally realistic. This is a book whose images will stick with you for a long time.
