1974 IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK by James Baldwin.  Hardcover book club edition by The Dial Press. The Dust Jacket is in very good condition and has been placed in a protective mylar sleeve. There is a bookplate inside the front cover.

Baldwin's intention with this classic was to intertwine two storylines, one of a couple falling in love and one of a family facing adversity, to show the ways in which they were connected in an attempt to illustrate the lifestyles of African Americans. Due to the storyline including a rape, this novel is often banned for violent content and censored based on age appropriateness in schools. If you are a collector of banned books, this is a novel you want on your library shelf.
