Praise

Praise for DEACON KING KONG:
 
“A mystery story, a crime novel, an urban farce, a sociological portrait of late-1960s Brooklyn: McBride’s novel contains multitudes… He conducts his antic symphony with deep feeling, never losing sight of the suffering and inequity within the merriment.” The New York Times, Top 10 Books of 2020
 
“Shouldn’t we just get it over with and declare McBride this decade’s Great American Novelist?…McBride has a way of inflating reality to comical sizes, the better for us to see every tiny mechanism that holds unjust systems in place.” Los Angeles Times
 
“A raucous, poignant, humanity-embracing novel.” O, The Oprah Magazine, Top 20 Books of 2020
 
“A story of comedy and compassion.” TIME, Top 10 Books of 2020
 
“A boisterous, imaginative, tender foray into late- 1960’s Brooklyn.” Entertainment Weekly, Top 10 Books of 2020
