From the author of the Man Booker longlisted The Underground Railroad Benji spends most of the year as one of the only black kids at an elite prep school in Manhattan, going to roller disco bar mitzvahs, desperately trying to find his place in the social hierarchy. Then he spends his summers in the African-American community of Sag Harbor on Long Island, and is just as confused. He's way behind on the latest handshakes, baffled by new slang, and his attempts to be cool and meet girls are constantly thwarted by his extremely awkward inner geek, braces and a badly cut Afro. It's the summer of 1985 and Benji is determined that this is the summer when things will change and he'll fit in. For starters, he'll be reinvented as 'Ben'. When that doesn't catch on, it's another summer of the perpetual mortification that is teenage existence.

Did you know that at one time whaling was the third largest industry in the United States? Or that a few Sag Harbor sailors jumped ship and became kings of South Seas islands? Or that Sag Harbor wives sometimes sailed with their husbands on three­and four-year voyages? Here are the stories of the Native Americans who lived here long before the colonists, the friendship of Chief Wyandanch and Lion Gardiner, the first Custom House established in our young country, the Black sailors who crewed the whale ships, saboteurs who landed in Amagansett in WW 11, mutinies, shipwrecks, steamboats, and people like John Steinbeck who wrote that Sag Harbor made him happy.This is a rich collection of more than 70 stories by a writer who has dug deeply to tell us why so many people visit, linger in, and love Sag Harbor.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Underground Railroad Colson Whitehead’s triumphant novel is on one level a multifaceted retelling of the story of John Henry, the black steel-driver who died outracing a machine designed to replace him. On another level it’s the story of a disaffected, middle-aged black journalist on a mission to set a record for junketeering who attends the annual John Henry Days festival. It is also a high-velocity thrill ride through the tunnel where American legend gives way to American pop culture, replete with p. r. flacks, stamp collectors, blues men , and turn-of-the-century song pluggers. John Henry Days is an acrobatic, intellectually dazzling, and laugh-out-loud funny book that will be read and talked about for years to come.

A History of the African American Novel offers an in-depth overview of the development of the novel and its major genres. In the first part of this book, Valerie Babb examines the evolution of the novel from the 1850s to the present, showing how the concept of black identity has transformed along with the art form. The second part of this History explores the prominent genres of African American novels, such as neoslave narratives, detective fiction, and speculative fiction, and considers how each one reflects changing understandings of blackness. This book builds on other literary histories by including early black print culture, African American graphic novels, pulp fiction, and the history of adaptation of black novels to film. By placing novels in conversation with other documents - early black newspapers and magazines, film, and authorial correspondence - A History of the African American Novel brings many voices to the table to broaden interpretations of the novel's development.
