Water Sports; Or Insignificant White Boys (Paperback)
It's July 5, 2015 and tomorrow James Baldwin will depart for the MacDowell Colony where he plans on writing his "homosexual tome" entitled Giovanni's Room but first he has to make brunch with Robert Mapplethorpe because their guests are about to arrive. In this new immersive work of autofiction, the author delves deep into his own psyche to discover what it means to be "fluid" and how one begins the work of decolonizing their desire.
