The Nobbie stories for children and adults by C. L. R James ( )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After more than a decade in the United States, the Caribbean writer C.L.R. James ran afoul of McCarthyism in 1953 and was deported. In exile in London, he began to write stories in the form of letters to his four-year-old son "Nobbie," who remained in the States. Through a distinctive, imaginary, and sometimes absurd cast of characters--Good Boongko, Bad boo-boo-loo, Moby Dick, and Nicholas the worker, among others--these stories explore questions of friendship, conflict, community, ethics, and power in humorous and often ingenious ways; they also stand as a moving testament to a father's struggle to be a vivid presence in the life of his son despite separation and distance
Special delivery : the letters of C.L.R. James to Constance Webb, 1939-1948 by C. L. R James ( Book )
2 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"C. L. R. James's correspondence with Constance Webb, the young American woman who eventually became his wife, began in 1939 and lasted a decade. Passionate, poetic, and wonderfully readable, the letters chart an extraordinary friendship and gripping period in the life of C. L. R. James as a revolutionary activist in America." "Beginning with James's first letters to Webb (written whilst visiting Trotsky in Coyoacan, Mexico) and ending with his letters from 'exile' in Nevada, the correspondence is simultaneously an intimate record of a romantic relationship and a profound meditation on politics, art, and American civilization. Whether debating with Richard Wright in New York, lecturing in Los Angeles, or singing arias aboard ship in the Gulf of Mexico, James is always a superb traveling companion: quick to draw historical and political lessons from everyday life, and always able to illuminate experience through art." "Something powerful was unlocked by James's experience of America. And at the centre of this experience was his attempt to bridge the gap of race, age, and gender between himself and Constance Webb. Already celebrated while unpublished, these letters form one of the major resources on James's life and thought during his American period. But they also tell a story as intellectually stimulating as it is affecting."--BOOK JACKET
