“Another Country”

The title of James Baldwin’s novel does not refer to geography, which Brent Edwards
articulated as part of the binary geographic/erotic. It refers instead
to the dream and the desire for utopia, and to the prayer that the
grace of that utopia would touch this present that we must endure.

"…she was waiting, in a despair, which steadily chilled and hardened,
for some word, some touch, of his. And he could not find himself, could
not summon or concentrate enough of himself to make any sign at all"
(430).
