Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin

Giovanni’s Room traces one man’s struggle
with his sexual identity. In a 1950s Paris swarming with expatriates and
characterized by dangerous liaisons and hidden violence, an American finds
himself confronting secret desires that jeopardize the conventional life he
envisions for himself. After meeting and proposing to a young woman, he falls
into a lengthy affair with an Italian bartender and is confounded and
tortured as he oscillates between the two.” “Now a classic of gay
literature, Baldwin’s haunting and controversial second novel is his most
sustained treatment of sexuality. Examining the agonizing mystery of love and
passion in an intensely imagined yet beautifully restrained narrative,
Baldwin creates a moving and complex story of death and desire that is
revelatory in its insight.”–BOOK JACKET.
