About this item

Author James Baldwin's "self-exile" in Provence from 1970 to 1987 is examined here through nearly eighty interviews with well-known personalities such as Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, Angela Davis, George Wein, Maya Angelou, Bill Wyman, and Toni Morrison. Although he maintained a lavish lifestyle during this period, he suffered from some writing woes and was briefly accused of anti-Semitism by a black Jewish college professor while he taught literature at Amherst one semester each year. This fascinating and personal account makes an important contribution to Baldwin's legacy.
