The Fire Next Time – I rarely read clearly, luxurious and insightful words in any topic. Baldwin can write this way about race as a gift for all who wish to heal our deep ethnic wounds. And we all want to treat it. Every word is right.
Baldwin is a rare person who understands weakness, nobility and beauty of the human soul. His compassion and his humanity shone through every great word in this powerful book. He wrote from a place where few people could achieve, share the countryside without cruelty, but with clarity and authority. Sadly, what he wrote in 1963 in this book still applies to this day: we haven’ t learned what he’ s been trying to teach us and we have a lot to do. Reading this book, so that its profound lessons guide you into the process of self – learning, so you can also understand the nature of your soul, and can become a better person in the process.
