The most daring, emotionally dense work I’ve ever read by a debut novelist. I can’t remember the last time a novel kept me breathless, wandering and reconsidering the decisions of my own life…. BRIGHT LINES is brilliant and absolutely souful." Kiese Laymon, Author of Long Division


  • GREENLIGHT BOOKSTORE 686 Fulton St Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States

TUESDAY, August 11, 2015 - Join me to celebrate the launch of my debut novel BRIGHT LINES at the wonderful Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene. The events of the novel take place minutes away from the bookstore, only a decade earlier.

What's even more special:  I'll be in conversation with Kiese Laymon, author of LONG DIVISION and HOW TO SLOWLY KILL YOURSELF IN AMERICA. He's one of the most profound and critical artists and teachers of our time.

Join us as we explore the themes of race, place, desire and deception in BRIGHT LINES.
