Writers LIVE! James McBride: Five-Carat Soul

Enoch Pratt Free Library

James McBride returns to fiction in Five-Carat Soul, an arresting collection of stories that present unexpected voices and brilliantly memorable characters: from an antique toy dealer chasing the discovery of a lifetime to a mixed-race child who believes he’s the son of Abraham Lincoln; a Ph.D. student who uncovers a war story more complicated than he imagined to five poor kids playing in a neighborhood band; a lion’s understanding of the world to a boxer fighting for his literal soul. McBride’s stories display his dazzling ability to inhabit a range of voices drawn from surprising scenarios. His language delights and captivates, and his remarkable characters show how our common humanity unites us all.

James McBride is an accomplished musician and author of the National Book Award-winning The Good Lord Bird, the bestselling American classic The Color of Water, and the bestsellers Song Yet Sung and Miracle at St. Anna. He is also the author of Kill ‘Em and Leave, a James Brown biography. A recipient of the National Humanities Medal, McBride is also Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University.
