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

The Undefeated Looks at the Beef in ZORA AND LANGSTON by Yuval Taylor

As it enters its second printing since publication, Zora and Langston is praised by The Undefeated, which explores “the intersections of race, sports and culture” and seeks to “enlighten and entertain with innovative storytelling, original reporting and provocative commentary,” in which Chris Vognar compares the conflict at the heart of the book to that of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls in music, and between  Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal in sports.

On BookRiot, Rebecca Hussey includes the book in her roundup “Seven Great New Literary Biographies for your TBR [Tailored Book Recommendations]”.
