Another Country James Baldwin 1962

I don't think I've ever given up on a book like 2/3rds the way through before, but I think I'm doing it now. It's well written and there's a lot of internal life for the characters which is good. The introduction of past episodes and transitions between settings and characters is artful. Interesting social issues are at the fore. The drama is somewhat compelling. But, it's like too nasty between characters and I think I've had enough.

I think we've already read the book. It is full of anecdotes showing that Drumpf is narcissistic, chaotic, mean and stupid. The only real news is that all the people closest to him are fully aware of his unfitness. The behind-the-scenes is what we'd expect for a guy who presents as Trump.

Guardian review.
