Giovanni’s Room James Baldwin

One of the most famous works of gay literature, Giovanni’s Room, set in the world of 1950s American expatriate Paris, is often the first gay novel many of us read. David falls for Giovanni, a handsome Italian, but then, unable to reconcile himself to his gay feelings, abandons him. Cast adrift in the sexual underworld of Paris, Giovanni goes on to murder his exploitative employer; is caught, tried and sentenced to death.
