高山上的呼喊 Go Tell It On The Mountain
Go Tell It on the Mountain is a 1953 semi-autobiographical novel by James Baldwin. The novel examines the role of the Christian Church in the lives of African-Americans, both as a source of repression and moral hypocrisy and as a source of inspiration and community. It also, more subtly, examines racism in the United States. The story is characteristic of a bildungsroman.

In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Go Tell It on the Mountain 39th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. Time Magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.
黑人作家。出生在纽约市黑人聚居区哈莱姆。14岁开始在教堂布道,3年后自称“看透了宗教的虚伪”,从此离开教堂,不信宗教。这段经历对他影响很大,他后来写的散文也带有布道时的说教口吻和激情。鲍德温离开教堂后不久,在他所谓的“美国工商业世界”中谋生,充当过饭馆侍者和仆役,业余时间写作书评和小品文,其中一部分后来收在散文集《土生子的札记》(1955)中。
