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
