Author Kenji Jasper only knew his maternal grandfather, Jesse Langley S. as a quiet man who smoked too many cigarettes, drank too much liquor and quoted the Bible like it was the only book he’d ever laid eyes on. Jesse’s children rarely hugged him, and his nearly sixty years of marriage to Sally seemed cold and complicated. But when the man who declared himself The Lone Ranger passed away in late 2002, Kenji began a long and life-changing journey to learn more about the grandfather he barely knew.
“There’s a new player stepping into the street-lit spotlight, and he’s one to watch. . . . Urban libraries have to get Got.”—Library Journal, on D’s debut novel Got (starred review)
It’s less than six months after the events of D’s first novel, Got, and our nameless narrator has vanished off the Brooklyn grid, only to end up in Atlanta. Yet trouble is shadowing him, and he is forced to make a life-or-death decision.
Writing since the age of 8, D has never held a legitimate job in his life. His words, however, have appeared in VIBE and other urban publications. An Atlanta native, he currently lives in an ungentrified neighborhood near you.
