Sarah’s Rating    

James Baldwin’s masterpiece Giovanni’s Room is one of the best books I’ve read, hands down. Set in 1950s Paris, it explores the complicated and varied nature of love.  Hypnotic prose, a story that is at once sophisticated, delicate and gritty, Baldwin refrains from the didactic, and allows the truth to speak for itself.

It is the story of a man torn between his love of a woman and another man. Dealing with the constrains of conventional morality, and the complicated nature of the human heart, it creates a beautiful, tragic, narrative that sticks with you.
