by James Baldwin,Toni Morrison (Editor)

Though one of the giants of 20th-century American letters he’s often been marginalized, relegated to the ghetto of writers about race. This perception of Baldwin solely as a black writer–and thus one whose interest lies primarily in the sociological or the documentary–undercuts the real importance he’s had in the development of postwar literature. The Library of America celebrates his place at the heart of American culture with two volumes of his most influential work, both edited by Toni Morrison.
