James McBride’s Deacon King Kong is set in 1969 and tells the story of an old deacon, nicknamed Sportcoat, and the large ensemble cast who live in and around the Causeway Housing Project in Brooklyn. The writing is delivered with rhythmic verve and radiates humor and humanism. It’s rare to find a book where the author’s affection for their characters is so apparent.
