“In a love story that evokes the blues, where passion and sadness are inevitably intertwined, Baldwin has created two characters so alive and profoundly realized that they are unforgettably ingrained in the American psyche.”
—Penguin Random House

“It is so vividly human and so obviously based upon reality, that it strikes us as timeless—an art that has not the slightest need of esthetic tricks, and even less need of fashionable apocalyptic excesses.”
—Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times

If Beale Street Could Talk may have been a story about the redemptive power of love, but it was written in the absolute conviction that ‘blood’ was ‘on the wind’ and that the powers that be were not long for this world.”
