I just got this book in the mail from the local bookstore I go to. I got it not just because it’s ‘of the moment’. I got it because it’s about James Baldwin. I started it last night. The first dozen pages were almost thrilling they were so vibrant with a candid writer’s voice.

I hope people don’t flee.
