Harlem Shuffle

Colson Whitehead


Ray Carney is an upstanding salesman of reasonably priced furniture, making a decent life for himself & his family.

Few people know he descends from a line of uptown hoods & crooks, & his facade of normality has more than a few cracks in it. Cracks that are getting bigger all the time.

Harlem Shuffle’s ingenious story plays out in a beautifully recreated New York City of the 1960s. It’s a family saga masquerading as a crime novel, an hilarious morality play, a social novel about race & power & ultimately a love letter to Harlem.
