Reviews

"Frank and affectionate. . . . Approaching Baldwin without reverence, though not quite irreverently, Campbell brings a mixture of intellectual integrity and something like truculence to the biographer's task."-- "Times Literary Supplement"
"Campbell has met the challenge and written a first-rate work. The best biography so far. . . . He deals not only with the facts of his subject's life but also with his works."-- "Chicago Tribune"
"A marvelously illuminating literary biography . . . . [and] an affectionate yet critical portrait."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"James Campbell has ably blended both scholarship and personal recollection."-- "New York Times"
"Must reading for anyone interested in James Baldwin."-- "Washington Post"
"A life-sized portrait in very broad strokes. . . . . A lively book that is immensely readable, serious, careful, and informed."-- "Boston Globe"
