    Benji Cooper, a fifteen-year-old African American boy coming-of-age in the 1980s, is about to spend another summer in Sag Harbor. One of the few black students at an elite Manhattan prep school, he's part of a small community of African-American professional families who've built a world of their own. In the summer of '85, Benji will be tested by contests big and small, by his misshapen haircut and by his secret Lite FM addiction. There will be complicated new handshakes to fumble through and state-of-the-art profanity to master. But maybe, just maybe, this summer things will be different. This might just be one for the ages. 288p.

    In brief, impressionistic sections ('Central Park,' 'Brooklyn Bridge,' 'Rush Hour,' etc.), the author reveals New York City as both caregiver and indifferent passerby. Establishing a point of view that shifts seamlessly from person to person, Whitehead distills the anxieties of first time arrivals and captures the ordeals of the veteran citydwellers - from Broadway to Coney Island. As lush, poetic a view of `the City' as you're liable to find. 176p. Pap.

    "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"--
