James McBride speaks with award-winning author and journalist Omar El Akkad (American War).

His first novel since the National Book award-winning The Good Lord Bird, James McBride applies his commanding prose and his infallible faith in humanity to his newest novel Deacon King Kong.

In Deacon King Kong, McBride masterfully tells the story of the shooting of a neighbourhood drug dealer by the local deacon and the subsequent blowback felt by the people who witnessed the shooting. In true McBride style, this story is a vivid portrayal of the tumultuous swirl of New York in the late 1960s that brings to life distinct characters who must face their own fears and secrets in order to survive.
