Book Companion

One of TIME Magazine's Ten Best Novels of the Year. In September 1969, a fumbling, cranky old church deacon known as Sportcoat shuffles into the courtyard of the Cause Houses housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .38 from his pocket, and, in front of everybody, shoots the project’s drug dealer at point-blank range. Bringing to these pages both his masterly storytelling skills and his abiding faith in humanity, James McBride has written a novel told with insight and wit, Deacon King Kong demonstrates that love and faith live in all of us.

Characters: 134. Amazon rating: 4 1/2 stars. Genre: Fiction.
