Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone

Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone - James Baldwin
There is a truth in the theater and there is a truth in life - they meet, but they are not the same, for life, God help us, is the truth. And those disguises which an artist wears are his means, not of fleeing from the truth, but of attempting to approach it.

Ο Baldwin έχει μοναδικό ταλέντο στο να εμβάλλει τέτοιο ρεαλισμό στην πρόζα του που να καταλήγει αναπόσπαστο κομμάτι της αφήγησης, που να οδηγεί τον αναγνώστη σε μια ξεχωριστή συναισθηματική σύνδεση με τους χαρακτήρες και τους αγώνες τους, τον ψυχολογικό και ηθικό τους αναβρασμό.
