A few weeks ago James Baldwin’s 95th birthday was posthumously celebrated and I felt it was the right time to add one more title of his to my collection. I was skint at that moment so I settled for one of his smaller collections. However, I was not too skint to buy an extra copy, so I bought two copies of Dark Days. It is a collection of essays in which Baldwin draws on his own experiences of prejudice in an America violently divided by race and blends it with the intensely personal and the political to envisage a better world.
If it sounds like the kind of read you are interested in, drop me a line and I could send it to you.
