Blues for Mister Charlie: A Play

De (autor)

en Limba Engleză Paperback – April 1995
In a small Southern town, a white man murders a black man, then throws his body in the weeds. With this act of violence--which is loosely based on the notorious 1955 killing of Emmett Till--James Baldwin launches an unsparing and at times agonizing probe of the wounds of race. For where once a white storekeeper could have shot a "boy" like Richard Henry with impunity, times have changed. And centuries of brutality and fear, patronage and contempt, are about to erupt in a moment of truth as devastating as a shotgun blast.

In his award-winning play, Baldwin turns a murder and its aftermath into an inquest in which even the most well-intentioned whites are implicated--and in which even a killer receives his share of compassion.

Recenzii

"A play with fires of fury in its belly, tears of anguish in its eyes, a roar of protest in its throat." --The New York Times

"Explosive, eloquent, honest.... To read it is devastating." --San Francisco Chronicle
