James Baldwin: A Biography

James Baldwin: A Biography - David A. Leeming Looks like this excellent biography of Baldwin is due to come out in a new edition in 2015. I read this 17 years ago and it's hard to imagine someone doing a better job of covering this American novelist who never quite seems to be rated as highly as he should be. Of the American novelists writing in those post-war years Baldwin remains my favorite.
