NOBODY KNOWS MY NAME. More Notes of a Native Son

New York: The Dial Press, 1961. First edition. Hardcover. This book is "part of a private log-book. It was written over the last six years, in various places, and in many states of mind." It records the last months of a major American writer's long self-exile in Europe, his return to America and to Harlem, and his first trip South at the time when the school integration battle was exploding. It contains, too, Mr. Baldwin's controversial profiles of Norman Mailer, Richard Wright, and Ingmar Bergman, as well as his vigorous attack on Faulkner's defense of the old South, his portrait of Harlem which brought cries of outrage from those within Harlem and those without, and his essay prompted by the riot at the United Nations the day after Lumumba's murder, "a very small echo of the black discontent now abroad in the world." 241pp. A very good plus copy on cloth and boards in a very good plus to near fine dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities.
