LoveReading Says

First published in 1956 and recounting a tormented love affair in Paris between the American narrator, David, and Giovanni, an Italian bartender, this is a classic of gay literature. Unable to repress their impulses, they are tortured by their sexual identity and it's just such a raw, heart-breaking read because of it. Beautifully written by Baldwin, the sense of shame and despair eeks out of every page and whilst it's a harrowing read at times, it's an important read and ultimately a hopeful one. Highly recommended.

Included in our '35 LGBTQ books to read this Pride Month and every month' Collection.
