A Lucky Man by Jamel Brinkley (Paperback)
The CLA hosted Jamel Brinkley's reading and signing for A Lucky Man on February 27, 2020.
A debut that Entertainment Weekly saw “creating waves within the literary sphere,” A Lucky Man explores the charged, complex ties between men whose mistakes threaten their relationships with friends, lovers, and family members. The stories in this glittering collection reflect the tenderness and vulnerability of black men and boys whose hopes sometimes betray them, especially in a world shaped by race, gender, and class—where luck may be the greatest fiction of all.
Jamel Brinkley was raised in the Bronx and Brooklyn, New York. He is a graduate of Columbia University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. He lives in California.
