Why it's taking me forever to finish consuming "Strivers Row"

by Kevin Baker

I have open books in almost every room of the house. This book, Striver’s Row, has been in my backpack which is an unfortunate place because that’s where my book club book is too. So, this book is put on the backburner until I finish the current book club book. I finished Assassination Vacation a couple of days ago and so I have picked this up again.

It’s a fascinating book. It reads well and so far it’s filled with all sorts of New York Black history. It is especially interesting b/c I am finishing Autobiography of Malcolm X again and Kevin Baker talks lots about Malcolm in the early days. It’s cool.
