Deacon King Kong by James McBride

This isn’t a book I would have picked up without Oprah telling me to but I’m glad she did. I had one false start with it, but on the second attempt I really got into the story. I’ll be honest, it’s a world I know nothing about and found difficult to fully understand - lots of drugs and guns and nicknames and people being mean to each other even though they liked each other. But, it was fun to explore this amazing cast of characters, a sprawling community that are trying ot make the best of their difficult circumstances.
