'Until I die there will be those moments, moments seeming to rise up out of
the ground like Macbethâe(tm)s witches, when his face will come before me,
that face in all its changes, when the exact timbre of his voice and tricks
of his speech will nearly burst my ears, when his smell will overpower my
nostrils...' Giovanni's Room is set in the Paris of the 1950s, where a
young American expatriate finds himself caught between his repressed
desires and conventional morality. David has just proposed marriage to his
American girlfriend, but while she is away on a trip he becomes involved in
a doomed affair with a bartender named Giovanni. With sharp, probing
insight, James Baldwin's classic narrative delves into the mystery of love
and tells an impassioned, deeply moving story that reveals the unspoken
complexities of the human heart.
