ZORA AND LANGSTON: A Story of Friendship and Betrayal by Yuval Taylor (W.W. Norton, March 2019)

NPR’S Fresh Air: Road Trip With ZORA AND LANGSTON In This Real-Life Literary Adventure

Maureen Corrigan reviewed Yuval Taylor’s Zora and Langston on Fresh Air today, saying:

Oh, to have been a passenger, squeezed into the rumble seat of that little car.

Reading Yuval Taylor’s new book, Zora and Langston, may be the next best experience. Writing in a vivid anecdotal style, Taylor’s book carries readers along on the giddy, and ultimately, very bumpy ride that was Hurston and Hughes’ friendship — a friendship that crashed in 1931, when it ran up against the daunting obstacles of jealousy and self-preservation.

Zora and Langston: A Story of Friendship and Betrayal by Yuval Taylor will be published on March 26th by W.W. Norton & Co.
