  • "A tale of a small group of atypical American's struggle to avoid an aimless, defeated, and defensive bohemia. Rufus, a gifted Black musician, Leona who loves him, his sister Ida, and her lover Viveldo depict the results of racism."@en
  • "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."

  • "Classic fiction. This masterly story of desire, hatred and violence opens with the unforgettable character of Rufus Scott, a scavenging Harlem jazz musician adrift in New York. Self-destructive, bad and brilliant, he draws us into a Bohemian underworld pulsing with heat, music and sex, where desperate and dangerous characters betray, love and test each other to the limit."
  • ""First there is a battlefield, a pressure-cooker, a time-bomb: the destructive potential that exists in racial bigotry, in color prejudice and in the tensions and sensitivities which such attitudes encourage. Woven into this pattern of violence, there is a theme that is gentle, wistful and poetic: this is Baldwin's apologia for homosexual love.""

  • "A novel of sex and blacks and whites in New York from Greenwich Village in Harlem which pictures the erosion of several characters: a small group of acquaintances struggling for survival in American bohemia. An often powerful and mostly sad story of life on the fringes of society."@en
