SCARCE FIRST EDITION of the third novel from one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Another Country paints a vivid depiction of bohemian life in 1950s New York, following a year in the lives of eight very different protagonists. Never one to shy away from taboos, Baldwin gives a eloquent and nuanced study of the complexities of interracial relationships, queerness, and non-monogamy in mid-century America.
