If Beale Street Could Talk

James Baldwin

To this love story James Baldwin brings a spare and impassioned intensity, charging it with universal resonance and power.

We are in Harlem, the black soul of New York City, in the era of Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. The narrator of Baldwin’s novel is Tish nineteen, and pregnant. Her lover Fonny, father of her child, is in jail accused of rape. Flashbacks from their love affair are woven into the compelling struggle of two families to win justice for Fonny.
