Product Details

Praise

“A gorgeous, virtuosic novel! In exquisite, often ecstatic, prose, McCarthy gives us a portrait of the artist as a young black man–or rather, as a set of young black men, brothers and friends and rivals. This is blackness as it collides with class and love. Blackness in its uneasy relationship to Europe and the Americas. Blackness in all of its inner intricacy, tension, and beauty. Blackness shattered from the inside, each facet spinning, in McCarthy’s own words, in “a hypnotic dance like shards in a kaleidoscope.” —Namwali Serpell, author of The Old Drift

“The debut novel from McCarthy, Harvard professor and author of essays destined to be taught in classrooms for years to come (among them “Notes on Trap”), The Fugitivities takes place in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Brazil, with Parisian interludes. The novel explores the collision of a teacher in crisis with a basketball coach yearning for a lost love, carrying the former on a journey that will change everything.” —Lydia Kiesling, The Millions Most Anticipated Books 2019
