This is one of my favorite books. James Baldwin really delves into the homosexuality of an American writer in Paris, in a beautifully written exploration of a then-scandalous affair with an Italian bartender named Giovanni. This is not only a vividly painful and personal reflection of his own sexuality but a extremely intriguing way to discuss the "American in Paris" phenomenon that was taking place at the time.
