Giovanni's Room (by James Baldwin) Synopsis: "Set in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart." This novel appears near the too of the AfterEllen’s Best Gay Books and Best Gay Fiction reading lists.
