Book Club! Virtual and in Person: "Harlem Shuffle" by Colson Whitehead

"Harlem Shuffle's" ingenious story plays out in a beautifully recreated New York City of the early 1960s. It's a family saga masquerading as a crime novel, a hilarious morality play, a social novel about race and power, and ultimately a love letter to Harlem.
But mostly, it's a joy to read, another dazzling novel from the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author.


"Colson Whitehead has a couple of Pulitzers under his belt, along with several other awards celebrating his outstanding novels. "Harlem Shuffle" is a suspenseful crime thriller that's sure to add to the tally -- it's a fabulous novel you must read." - NPR.org

Staff recommended: After the worst of the plague is over, armed forces stationed in Chinatown's Fort Wonton have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street--aka Zone One. the tale unfolds over three surreal days dealing with the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigors of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder (PASD), and the impossible task of coming to terms with a fallen world. And then things start to go terribly wrong...
At once a chilling horror story and a literary novel by a contemporary master, "Zone One" is a dazzling portrait of modern civilization in all its wretched, shambling glory.
Published in 2012, this is one of the earlier post-apocalyptic novels. Really well done! ~Elaine.
