Conversations with James Baldwin Baldwin, J.

This anthology brings together previously published interviews with James Baldwin from the beginning through the end of his career.  Baldwin provides fascinating insights on many issues including why he left New York for Paris, his conflict with Richard Wright, and the reasons why he defended William Styron’s controversial book The Confessions of Nat Turner when other writers were highly critical of it.
