James Baldwin — New essays released, the power of words restored

It is not often that one gets to read the words of a literary genius, fresh, long after his death. But this is one of those times when the uncommon becomes at least, possible. It is with this in mind, that I recommend to you the uncollected essays and all-around linguistic genius of James Baldwin — the finest writer ever to come from the United States (and possibly from anywhere) — in the just-released collection The Cross of Redemption: Uncollected Writings, and more than recommend it, suggest strongly that you get a copy, read it, commit it to memory, and above all else, allow it to remind you of the power of words.
