    "Uncle Jimmy, Uncle Jimmy!" James Baldwin's nephew, Tejan Karefa-Smart, pestered him, "When are you going to write a book about me?" Baldwin took up the project with utter seriousness, and the result has the weight and significance of a novel. Originally published to little fanfare in 1976, the book went out of print soon afterward; Duke University Press is now reissuing it, following its discovery in the writer's archives by a young scholar.
