Jamel Brinkley


Tuesday, May 15 | 7 PM Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, 126 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10012

A Public Space debut author Jamel Brinkley launches A Lucky Man (APS/Graywolf) at Housing Works Bookstore with Angela Flournoy and friends.

The nine expansive, searching stories in A Lucky Man reflect the tenderness and vulnerability of black men whose hopes sometimes betray them. Brinkley's work first appeared in A Public Space, in No. 21 and No. 22; and you can read Victor LaValle's feature on the title story here. A Lucky Man is the #1 pick on the Indie Next list for May 2018.
