Giovanni's Room is James Baldwin's 1956 novel about an American man whose life is irrevocably altered by an affair with an Italian bartender he meets in Paris named Giovanni. Controversial at the time for its portrayal of homosexuality, the nuance and emotion Baldwin brought to the subject is the reason it has endured as a classic that continues to be enjoyed by readers gay and straight to this day.
