James Baldwin's "Another Country" is a brilliant, unflinching, remarkable novel.

It is often said "That one should not judge others, until you have walked in their shoes. Never has such a statement been so vividly brought to life than in this book. Set in Greenwich Village, Another Country blows the lid off the "pretty, wholesome, good ole America" of the 1950s with total abandon and disregard.

Another Country book. Because of how James Baldwin wrote the characters in Another Country – merciless to their weaknesses but compassionate to their failures at the same time – I didn’t have high hopes for a happy ending although there were sparks of happiness and moments when the loneliness was forgotten not just at the bottom of an empty bourbon bottle but in the embrace of a.

James Baldwin's "Another Country" is a brilliant, unflinching, remarkable novel. It is often said "That one should not judge others, until you have walked in their shoes." Never has such a statement been so vividly brought to life than in this book. Mr. Baldwin makes the reader feel exactly what it is like to be an outsider... A black person, a homosexual, a female... In a white man's world.

I have often compared Mr. Baldwin's books to Martin Scorsese' movies. They both reveal a realism that is frightening and can only be achieved by artists extremely familiar with the material. The characters are complex, sexually, morally, racially, and yet they are as real as any characters you could ever hope to encounter. The writing is sublime and the structure and narrative are the work of a true craftsman and master.

I cannot recommend this book enough. This is great literature and it is as relevant today as it was when published in 1961.

Love Baldwin's writing style because he opens your mind to different perspectives.
Another Country seeks to bring understanding to those who are often most misunderstood. Gay men, black women and adulterous wives, those societies tend to hate the most, the people who are often only understood by one another. I would recommend the book for open minds; it is a passionate novel that vocalizes the agony of being different.

this novel diffuses baldwn's discussion on race through the friendships and connnections a small group of new yorkers make in the states and europe. the interactions are alternately sensual, violent and tragic but all are powerful and continue to haunt the reader long after the last page is turned. baldwin joins his views on race with exposing sexuality among the young for a charged and passionate reading experience. i loved this book when i read it the first time; it was the book that prepared me for reading baldwin's essays on race. it also serves as a companion to viewing 'i am not your negro'.

In only the way James Baldwin can, it moves you through emotions, self reflection, and visceral empathy for the human condition. It’s vibrant with characters and storyline but awfully detailed in many places. Sometimes it felt like he was using his words to sing to the reader. Poetic and poignant yet incisively precise. It’s basically a love story that never ends.

Brilliant exploration of the intersections of race and gender and living in a world where who "makes it" and who doesn't can be the result of how well and how lucky one is at playing the game. Baldwin's narrative masterfully weaves together a tale that seamlessly moves from events in the past to the present and from characters' back stories in such a way that the reader never gets lost. The narrative captures the imagination and yet, manages to examine the nature of relationships and money and race in a philosophical manner that never gets preachy or that takes away from or feels misplaced in the story.

Prescient. It is almost eerie to read this today, now, where we are just catching up with Baldwin. He articulated it so well, so long ago.
Sharpbringer
Another Country is a very powerful read, both gut wrenching and heart warming. It’s not a book to simply skim through...I read every moving moment. If you’re looking for something tough and thoughtful, give it a chance...you won’t be disappointed.
This story is deals with a group of friends striving to find themselves, find love and success. In the process, while caring for one another, this quests ends with them hurting those they love. The relationships are confronted with sexual issues, race relations and betrayal. While the novel genre is from the fiftys, some of the same issues we face today.
