Adam Mansbach presents Rage Is Back
Conversation with author and professor Joseph G. Schloss
Opening reading by Angel Nafis

New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach (author of Go the F**k to Sleep as well as the novels Angry Black White Boy and The End of the Jews) returns with Rage is Back, a blockbuster tale of revenge, redemption, and the world’s most beautiful crime. When Billy Rage, one of New York’s greatest graffiti writers in the 1980s, returns to the city he left in disgrace, it’s up to his slacker son Dondi to help him defeat his old nemesis, a former transit cop running for mayor. In this mind-bending journey through a subterranean world of epic heroes, villains, and eccentrics, Adam Mansbach balances an intricately plotted, high-stakes caper with a wildly inventive tale of time travel and shamanism, prodigal fathers and sons, and the hilariously intertwined realms of art, crime, and spirituality. Mansbach will discuss his book with Dr. Joseph G. Schloss, hip hop scholar and author of Foundation: B-Boys, B-Girls, and Hip-Hop Culture in New York. Greenlight’s own Angel Nafis will open up the event with a poetry set.

Please note: while Adam is happy to sign other titles as well, customers must have a copy of Rage Is Back in order to join the signing line.
