James Baldwin has long been on my list of authors to read. And Go Tell It on the Mountain is on TIME’s 100 novels list. I thought I’d start there. I also want to read Giovanni’s Room, which is considered prominent in LGBT fiction, but first I need to get through the books in my library stack and on my shelf. But I’ll say this: Go Tell It on the Mountain is a terrific place to start. You can find the full review on my personal blog, The Universe Disturbed.
