Happy release day to Colson Whitehead!

The two-time Pulitzer-winning novelist’s latest work, Harlem Shuffle, came out today (just a day after it was announced as a Kirkus Prize finalist).

Harlem Shuffle takes a bit of a detour from its two immediate predecessors, The Underground Railroad and The Nickel Boys — it’s a humorous heist novel.

Whitehead spoke with NPR’s Noel King and CrimeReads’s Dwyer Murphy about the experience of conceiving, researching, and writing such a novel, particularly after having explored the darker side of humanity in prior books.

And Karan Mahajan writes about how Harlem Shuffle, despite its moments of hilarity, still captures some of that seedier underside in a review for the New York Times

Finally, Literary Hub has an excerpt of Harlem Shuffle for your enjoyment.
