Little Man, Little Man

A Story of Childhood
A novel by

Four-year-old TJ spends his days on his lively Harlem block playing with his best friends WT and Blinky and running errands for neighbors. As he comes of age as a "Little Man" with big dreams, TJ faces a world of grown-up adventures and realities. Baldwin's only children's book, Little Man, Little Man celebrates and explores the challenges and joys of black childhood.

Now available for the first time in forty years, this new edition of Little Man, Little Man - which retains the charming original illustrations by French artist Yoran Cazac - includes a foreword by Baldwin's nephew Tejan 'TJ' Karefa-Smart and an afterword by his niece Aisha Karefa-Smart, with an introduction by two Baldwin scholars. In it we not only see life in 1970s Harlem from a black child's perspective; we gain a fuller appreciation of the genius of one of America's greatest writers.
