Thalia Book Club: Colson Whitehead, Harlem Shuffle


Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Colson Whitehead (The Underground Railroad, The Nickel Boys) returns to Symphony Space with his latest novel, which The New York Times calls "a gloriously entertaining novel of heists, shakedowns, and rip-offs." A brilliant love letter to 1960s Harlem, Harlem Shuffle is a multigenerational family saga in the guise of a crime thriller, intricately plotted and richly detailed. ZZ Packer (Drinking Coffee Elsewhere) joins to lead the discussion, and actor Calvin Leon Smith (The Underground Railroad) performs an excerpt from the novel.
