The Devil Finds Work

Author: James Baldwin

Reader: Dion Graham

Format: 3 CDs (Unabridged)

Baldwin's personal reflections on movies gathered here are also a probing appraisal of American racial politics. Offering an incisive look at racism in American movies and a vision of America's self-delusions and deceptions, Baldwin challenges the underlying assumptions in such films as In the Heat of the Night, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, and The Exorcist. Here are our loves and hates, biases and cruelties, fears and ignorance reflected by the films that have entertained us and shaped our consciousness.
