Fifty Famous Stories Retold // James Baldwin.

Time to time I break away from theology to read fiction, but I was already too preoccupied with many other books. So, this short collection was the perfect choice with short stories not much longer than a few-minutes read. I’m not sure how famous these are since I probably only heard about 10 of the 50. I’m also not sure in what way these are retold. But I do like James Baldwin, who is an unparalleled writer in his own right. It’s very impressive that someone like James Baldwin, a fireball in his nonfiction work critiquing contemporary society and culture, to write children’s work. It shows the breadth of his literary prowess. There’s not much to say except that these short stories are 98% Western. Still fun, I’d say.
