Personal Quote:

The great power of literature is to expand our vision. "Go Tell It on the Mountain" is a case in point. You feel as if Baldwin bled over this book, that this book hurt to write. It's not a memoir; it's somebody taking very real feelings and turning them into art. He writes evocatively, but you don't need to have a graduate degree to understand his books-you just need to have a heart. See more »

Trivia:

Son of Leslie Hawke and Jim Hawke - they divorced in 1974. Stepson of David Weiss. He has five stepsisters and one stepbrother. See more »

Trademark:

In later roles, meek and mild-manner demeanor See more »
