James McBride presents Five-Carat Soul
In conversation with Eric Eddings
Bestselling author James McBride (The Color of Water) presents his new collection Five-Carat Soul, his first work of fiction since his National Book Award-winning novel The Good Lord Bird. The stories in Five-Carat Soul – none of them ever published before – spring from the place where identity, humanity, and history converge, and are told with McBride's unrivaled storytelling skill and meticulous eye for character and detail. Narrated with copious voices and in wide-ranging settings, and populated with characters ranging from teenaged neighborhood band members to Abraham Lincoln himself, Five-Carat Soul is a funny and perceptive collection of stories that is also a moving exploration of our human condition. McBride reads and discusses his book in conversation with Eric Eddings, co-host of the podcast The Nod.
