    The time is 1985. Benji, the son of a lawyer and a doctor, is one of the only black kids at an elite prep school in Manhattan. He spends his falls and winters going to roller-disco bar mitzvahs and trying desperately to find a social group that will accept him. But every summer, Benji and his brother, Reggie, escape to the East End of Sag Harbor, where a small community of African American professionals has built a world of its own. Except Benji is just as confused about this all-black refuge as he is about the white world he negotiates during the school year. A deeply affectionate, fiercely funny, coming-of-age novel from the author of The Intuitionist and The Colossus of New York.

    "In THE NOBLE HUSTLE Colson Whitehead does for participatory journalism what he did for zombie novels in ZONE ONE: Take one literary genius, add $10,000 and a seat at the World Series of Poker, and stir. On one level, Colson Whitehead's THE NOBLE HUSTLE is a familiar species of participatory journalism - a longtime neighborhood poker player, Colson was given a $10,000 stake and an assignment from the online ESPN offshoot Grantland to see how far he could get in the World Series of Poker. But since it stems from the astonishing mind of Colson Whitehead (MacArthur Award-endorsed!), the book is a brilliant, hilarious, weirdly profound and ultimately moving portrayal of - yes, it sounds overblown and ridiculous, but really! - the human condition"--

    In this singular take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. The worst of the plague is over, and the provisional government in Buffalo orchestrates the return to civilization with the aid of therapy seminars, corporate sponsorships, and the uplifting anthem “Stop! Can You Hear the Eagle Roar?” The resettlement of Manhattan is a top priority. Armed forces stationed in Chinatown’s Fort Wonton have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street – aka Zone One – but pockets of plague-ridden squatters remain. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the three-person civilian sweeper units clearing lower Manhattan building by building, block by block. Alternating between haunting flashbacks of Spitz’s desperate fight for survival during the worst of the outbreak and his present narrative, Zone One unfolds over three surreal days in which Spitz is occupied with the mundane missions of straggler removal, then rigors of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder (PASD), and the impossible task of coming to terms with a fallen world. And then things start to go wrong…259p.
