Go Tell It on the Mountain

by James Baldwin

 

Originally published in 1953

This coming-of-age story, based in part on James Baldwin's childhood, portrays a fourteen-year-old boy questioning the terms of his identity. 

 

John Grimes is the stepson of a Pentecostal preacher in Depression-era Harlem. The action of the novel spans a single day in John's life, and yet manages to encompass on an epic scale his family's troubled past and his own inchoate longings for the future.
