James Baldwin on The Creative Process

Carrying 4 novels in a duffel bag on a boat to Paris, James Baldwin, age 24, hope to escape racism and live in a creative incubus that allowed him to write; shortly after his arrival he lost those collections.

The Blog’s Mission

The writings are a space for intellectual and spiritual wondering about the meaning of life.
