About this item
Set in Harlem during the middle decades of the 20th century, Baldwin's saga of a family in crisis takes the form of a memoir. Narrated by the brother of a gospel singer who dies tragically, the book is an elegiac outpouring of grief, and an eloquent story of black family life and the potency of religion. The title refers to the omnipresence of death in life.
