Another Country (Vintage International) (Paperback)
If you were moved by Smith’s candid account of Robert Mapplethorpe’s sexuality, and the changes it brought to their relationship, you might enjoy James Baldwin’s 1962 work Another Country. This novel, set in New York City like Just Kids, features a network of several characters engaging in queer relationships, some for the first time, and demonstrates sexual discovery both beautifully and frankly.--Griffin— From If You Loved..."Just Kids"
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.
"Brilliantly and fiercely told." —The New York Times
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
