'Achingly beautiful' Guardian

Harlem in the 1970s: the black soul of New York City. Tish is nineteen and the man she loves - her lifelong friend and the father of her unborn child - has been jailed for a crime he did not commit. As their families come together to fight for his freedom, will their love be enough?

'Soulful . . . Racial injustice may flatten "the black experience" into one single, fearful, constantly undermined way of life - but black life, black love, is so much larger than that . . . It's one of the signature lessons of Baldwin's work that blackness contains multitudes' Vanity Fair

'If Beale Street Could Talk affirms not only love between a man and a woman, but love of a type that is dealt with only rarely in contemporary fiction - that between members of a family' Joyce Carol Oates

Rezensionen
"One of the best books Baldwin has ever written perhaps the best of all." The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A moving, painful story, so vividly human and so obviously based on reality that it strikes us as timeless. Joyce Carol Oates

""f Van Gogh was our nineteenth-century artist-saint, James Baldwin is our twentiethth-century one." Michael Ondaatje

"Striking and particularly haunting. . . . A beauty, especially in its rendering of youthful passion." Cosmopolitan

"A major work of Black American fiction... His best novel yet, even Baldwin's most devoted readers are due to be stunned by it." The New Republic

"Emotional dynamite... a powerful assault upon the cynicism that seems today to drain our determination to confront deep social problems." Library Journal

"A moving, painful story, so vividly human and so obviously based on reality that it strikes us as timeless." The New York Times Book Review
