New Lebanon Book Group: Deacon King Kong by James McBride
November 1, 2020 –
November 1 title: Deacon King Kong by James McBride.
There are numerous copies available through New Lebanon Library.
"Deacon King Kong is fast, deep, complex, and hilarious. McBride's prose is shimmering and moving, a living thing that has its own rhythm, pulls you in from the first page and never lets go. His story focuses on the people that make the Big Apple what it is: the strange, the poor, the insane, the mobsters. He also showcases the city's wonderful diversity, filling his pages with Puerto Ricans, African Americans, Italians, and Irish folks." "full of heart, humor, and compassion...a novel about all of us."
---Gabino Iglesias, NPR
