Article on James Baldwin

My article on the short stories and novels of James Baldwin was just published in the Spring 2014 issue of literary journal Arizona Quarterly. You can read the full article by clicking here.

Pictured below is a detail from a portrait of James Baldwin by the Harlem Renaissance painter Beauford Delaney. Baldwin said that it was Delaney who taught him to perceive beauty in the modern metropolis.
