  • Product Description

    The Book of Harlan opens with the courtship of Harlan’s parents and his 1917 birth in Macon, Georgia. After his prominent minister grandfather dies, Harlan and his parents move to Harlem, where he eventually becomes a professional musician. When Harlan and his best friend, trumpeter Lizard Robbins, are invited to perform at a popular cabaret in the Parisian enclave of Montmartre—affectionately referred to as “The Harlem of Paris” by black American musicians—Harlan jumps at the opportunity, convincing Lizard to join him.

    But after the City of Light falls under Nazi occupation, Harlan and Lizard are thrown into Buchenwald—the notorious concentration camp in Weimar, Germany—irreparably changing the course of Harlan’s life. Based on exhaustive research and told in McFadden’s mesmeric prose, The Book of Harlanskillfully blends the stories of McFadden’s familial ancestors with those of real and imagined characters.

    This book just snatched all of my edges...

    "...I don't hate anyone. That's not to say that I don't have it in me. I believe we all got it in us — but whenever I feel it trying to climb out, I look at this here pendant and am reminded that love is more powerful than hate will ever be." -The Book of Harlan by Bernice L.
