Product Overview

James Baldwin's stunning first novel is now an American classic. With startling realism that brings Harlem and the black experience vividly to life, this is a work that touches the heart with emotion while it stimulates the mind with its narrative style, symbolism, and excoriating vision of racism in America. Moving through time from the rural South to the northern ghetto, starkly contrasting the attitudes of two generations of an embattles family, "Go Tell It On The Mountain is an unsurpassed portrayal of human beings caught up in a dramatic struggle and of a society confronting inevitable change.
"The most important novel written about the American Negro," says "Commentary. "It is written with poetic intensity and great narrative skill," writes "Harper's. "Saturday Review praises it as "masterful," and the "San Francisco Chronicle declares that this important American novel is "brutal, objective and compassionate."
