Ep. 6 Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin — The Stacks Book Club (Chris Maddox) The Stacks

    • Literature

On this week of The Stacks, we discuss Giovanni's Room by James Baldwin with our guest, TV writer Chris Maddox.



Giovanni's Room is a classic American novel written in 1956, and the topics of masculinity, isolation, and love deferred are as relevant now as they were then. Our conversation traverses these themes from the book and more, like what we think of the title and who we think should star in the film version.





 





There are spoilers in this episode, so if you've yet to read the book proceed with caution.





Here are other things that we talked about this week on The Stacks.
