«Nothing but the darkness, and all around them destruction, and before them nothing but the fire-a bastard people, far from God, singing and crying in the wilderness!» First published in 1953, Baldwin's first novel is a short but intense, semi-autobiographical exploration of the troubled life of the Grimes family in Harlem during the Depression.
