Baldwin vs. Buckley 1965…

24 May

James Baldwin just RSVPed to my Writers Group meeting, and although he’s a nice fellow, he is regrettably not the gentleman who wrote Giovanni’s Room or debated William F. Buckley at his smarmiest in 1965 at Cambridge University.

It’s amazing to see the reception Baldwin receives at Cambridge, which in 1965 would have been hard to imagine at an American university.
