If Beale Street could talk

James Baldwin

Tish is 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. Tish narrates her thoughts, pregnancy pains, fears and hopes, as she recounts childhood memories and the struggle to exonerate the accused.

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