From the Publisher:

"An almost unbearable, tumultuous, blood-pounding experience" --Washington Post

"Brilliantly and fiercely told." --The New York Times

From the Inside Flap:

Set in Greenwich Village, Harlem, and France, among other locales, Another Country is a novel of passions--sexual, racial, political, artistic--that is stunning for its emotional intensity and haunting sensuality, depicting men and women, blacks and whites, stripped of their masks of gender and race by love and hatred at the most elemental and sublime. In a small set of friends, Baldwin imbues the best and worst intentions of liberal America in the early 1970s.
