To escape racism in America, James Baldwin fled to Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France, in 1970, where he lived in self-imposed exile until his death in 1987. This book focuses on this 17-year period of his life and literature. Author Jules B. Farber presents life with Jimmy through more than seventy interviews of personal reminisces with well-known literary figures, musicians, artists and celebrities such as Sidney Poitier, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Quincy Jones, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Bill Wyman, Harry Belafonte, Jr., George Wein and many others.
