If Beale Street Could Talk

Write The First Customer Review

Baldwin writes an affecting, affirming, bluesy love story about a pair of teenage lovers--one in jail, one pregnant--and their attempts to stay together and raise a family in the face of racist oppression. Fonny, the artist, is arrested for a crime he didn't commit and incarcerated in the Tombs. His devoted girlfriend, Tish, is determined to get him out.
