The only problem with this book is that it should be more irrelevant. Unfortunately, Baldwin's insights still stun, his compassion still provides needed consolation, and his eloquent demand for change, now -- for "in our time, as in every time, the impossible is the least that one can demand" -- is still timely. Read it, and then make it unnecessary.

— Matt


At once a powerful evocation of his early life in Harlem and a disturbing examination of the consequences of racial injustice to both the individual and the body politic, James Baldwin galvanized the nation in the early days of the civil rights movement with his eloquent manifesto. The Fire Next Time stands as one of the essential works of our literature.
