The fire next time;James Baldwin

The landmark work on race in America from James Baldwin, whose life and words are immortalized in the Oscar-nominated film I Am Not Your Negro

?We, the black and the white, deeply need each other here if we are really to become a nation?

James Baldwin?s impassioned plea to ?end the racial nightmare? in America was a bestseller when it appeared in 1963, galvanising a nation and giving voice to the emerging civil rights movement. Told in the form of two intensely personal ?letters?, The Fire Next Time is at once a powerful evocation of Baldwin?s early life in Harlem and an excoriating condemnation of the terrible legacy of racial injustice.

?Sermon, ultimatum, confession, deposition, testament, and chronicle ? all presented in searing, brilliant prose? The New York Times Book Review

?Baldwin writes with great passion ? it reeks of truth, as the ghettoes of New York and London, Chicago and Manchester reek of our hypocrisy? Sunday Times

?The great poet-prophet of the civil rights movement ? his seminal work? Guardian
