Then comes the day that Sportcoat walks up to the flagpole where the young man called Deems is dealing drugs and shoots him with an old.
Death is sure to find Sportcoat now that the top drug dealer in the Cause has been shot. What follows is the incredible story of the people affected by the shooting: from the victim and the witnesses to the local police officers and the Italian mob.
All the characters eventually connect in surprising and clever ways to share a poignant and often hilarious tale of faith and change in the whirlwind of s New York.
The characters and their community are crystal clear in my mind and I didn't want their story to end. If you're a fan of James McBride, literary fiction, or are just searching for an atmospheric story to get lost in, you'll want to pick up Deacon King Kong.

Apr 17, Candie rated it liked it. I seem to be in the minority here but for some reason I just couldn't really get into this book. I thought it was good and the characters were flawed and real individuals who I genuinely enjoyed, but something was missing for me.
There was nothing that really stood out that will make this book memorable for me and it was pretty predictable. I think it was the writing style itself that I didn't connect to.
I'm not a very good person with small talk and chit chat and that was basically what the I seem to be in the minority here but for some reason I just couldn't really get into this book.
I'm not a very good person with small talk and chit chat and that was basically what the majority of the book was centered around.
It had a lot of characters who just liked to talk a lot about their day. I love my grandmother to pieces but it felt like one of my weekly two hour phone calls with her.
Overall, I enjoyed it okay while I was reading it but unfortunately I don't think it will leave any kind of lasting impression.
If you are into purely character driven stories, you may enjoy this though as it does seem to have very good reviews. Such talented men! James talked about growing up in church, with the characters in his book reminiscent of real people in his life.
He is brilliant with words. The business of life is the only business there is. Also, A library or bookstore is freedom. Oprah, good pick!!!
James McBride is a master storyteller that will keep your interest until the very last word. This book, this novel, this saga takes place in , in the hardest hit areas of New York, right before the economic downturn of the 's.
No one feels this economic slump harder than the disenfranchised people of the outer boroughs of New York City. But this group has survived here for generations: the Irish, Italians, Jews and the "Negros" who move up from the South in the 's.
A powerful, honest, raw, funny, heartbreaking and beautiful story of some of those people. View all 13 comments. Apr 24, Barbara rated it it was amazing Shelves: adult-fiction , suspense , literature , historical-fiction.
Author James McBride is now one of my favorite authors who I shall follow and whose novels I shall read. He can write a sentence that is funny, sarcastic, tragic, and enlightening, all in one, albeit, long sentence.
The setting is in the Brooklyn projects in McBride writes the kaleidoscope of characters coexisting in a neighborhood.
He includes the upright church ladies, who influence and Author James McBride is now one of my favorite authors who I shall follow and whose novels I shall read.
He includes the upright church ladies, who influence and rule the majority of social undertakings. The drug infestation is evident, along with a touch of the mafia.
In his story, McBride is kind to the police force, mostly only showing the humanitarian side. Yet, with skill he wrote in the abuses that the minorities faced daily, and the fortitude and resolve his characters possessed to maintain their dignity.
At the same time, he made his characters hysterically funny and sometimes hapless. Take the character whose namesake is the title of the novel.
The Deacon King Kong, aka Sportcoat because he always dresses up in his finery , begins the story. The kid, Deems, had great talent and Sportcoat wanted him to use that talent to get out of the projects.
He comes just to talk to Deems but becomes befuddled and shoots him. Deems is currently the major drug dealer in the project. No one shoots the dealer; but Sportcoat does.
Deems was eating a sandwich when Sportcoat shot him, and well, Deems chokes. Sportcoat saves him, but the act of saving him looks a bit different to other folks.
Sportcoat is also a Deacon of the First Baptist Church and is a known character of the church. Sportcoat shot Deems publicly in the market square.
There are many witnesses. The police get involved, the townsfolk, the church people. McBride weaves his eccentric characters into a story the encapsulates the life of that era.
With his literary skill, McBride takes the reader on an exuberant adventure that will leave you chuckling out loud. There were a lot of theories floating around the projects as to why old Sportcoat a wiry, laughing, brown-skinned man who had coughed, wheezed, hacked, guffawed, and drank his way through the Cause Houses for a good part of his seventy-one years shot the most ruthless drug dealer the projects had ever seen.
Sportcoat had no recollection of having done this, since he was usually at least a bit tipsy - his preferred drink was home made hooch called King Kong.
Unfortunately for Sportcoat, there were many witnesses to the shooting. What follows is a story that is part mystery, part shaggy dog story that is often very funny and is always entirely wonderful.
Many of the characters live in a Housing project called Cause Houses. I loved the way the author intertwined the stories of the people whose lives centered around Five Ends and the local mobsters.
I read the book on not being explained to. I loved this book. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Its a funny and serious book, a good piece of escapism. McBride has a way with words, he is very "A lot of saints don't start off well, but they end that way.
McBride has a way with words, he is very descriptive and vivid. The ending left me wanting more, there was some aspects that I wish were resolved more concretely.
View all 10 comments. Storytelling at its best! It's not often stories like these cross the radar. Having read others by James, this was truly unexpected.
The world he's created with Deacon, aka Sportcoat, a hard-drinking, storyteller with a heart of gold, and his sidekick, Hot Sausage, is one filled with challenge, cops, drug dealers, Mafia types and church women.
The use of hilarious ghetto phrases Yo cheese done slipped off yo cracker adds to the fun, while the plot unravels steadily. Driven by themes of Storytelling at its best!
Driven by themes of redemption, loyalty, trust and faith, Deacon clings to the 'notion' of his deceased wife who acts as his guide.
Characters of depth, plot twists and humor are important elements for reader engagement. McBride demonstrates his mastery by creating a compelling story that lingers in our hearts and minds.
Guaranteeing a nearly perfect rating from the masses and broadcasting my wrongreader status far and wide. The premise here starts off fairly simple.
A cloudy September afternoon in What follows is a story about the neighborhood surrounding the Five Points Baptist Church and the various characters who reside near there.
Church ladies, maintenance men with a government cheese side hustle, bumbling hitmen, a mobster known as the Elephant, and on and on.
Serious messages are delivered with humor sometimes to the point of being the annoying slapstick variety as you meander through the interconnected tales of a possible missing treasure and missing Christmas club cash.
This was my second go around with McBride and at this point I feel comfortable saying my lack of stars comes from a place of enjoying the tale but not the telling.
This had a lot of potential, and maybe it fell victim to the hype train for me. Sep 27, Kasa Cotugno rated it it was amazing Shelves: loc-usa-nyc , culture-african-american , arc , era-lateth-century , author-visit.
Brooklyn A housing project with a view of the Statue of Liberty. Heroin is beginning its invasive inroads into the population. That's the setup.
Populated with the most colorful, diverse cast imaginable, award winner James McBride has accomplished the difficult feat of making each character come alive, every set up believable and relatable.
As their stories are revealed and intertwine, the rascals and heroes of these mean streets are presented with such heart and beauty, I was sorry when Brooklyn As their stories are revealed and intertwine, the rascals and heroes of these mean streets are presented with such heart and beauty, I was sorry when it wrapped up.
The writer who came to mind most clearly during the reading was Jimmy Breslin, who shares his insider's love of New York, his journalistic background, his talent for dialogue and beautifully wrought farce.
Which is not to omit the larger implications behind the humor. Well done. Oct 30, David Schaafsma rated it really liked it Shelves: fictionst-century.
This James McBride can write! After reading a slew of grim, apocalyptic books I turned to the kind of book people used to call rollicking, where we meet a wild cast of nicknamed characters who get involved in a wild goose chase of an adventure.
Now, in keeping with the random synchronicity of my reading, this book does document a time, , when knives changed to guns as booze turned to heroin in Brooklyn, it doesnt lie about that, but the emphasis in the story is more on hope than many of the This James McBride can write!
Deacon King Kong is less about the horrors and more about storytelling as the glue that holds a community of diverse elements--folks from Louisiana, Barbados, Puerto Rico, and so on--together.
A paen to a time when we were less divided based on our differences than today, less angry and fearful. As someone who lived and loved , it felt very nostalgic to me in many ways.
The story is kind of a hoot. Basically shoots off his ear. Will Deems find and kill his old coach?! Will he ever play baseball again?!
There are many threads in this book, but the central shaggy dog story is about a guy who wants help finding a valuable piece of art work said to be worth 3 million.
And no one knows where this piece of artwork is. A fun, funny, rollicking book, with an unlikely romance between an older black church lady and an even older Irish cop that gives the tale warmth.

There were moments that I did not want to put the book down. And, then, there were moments that I was ready to throw the book at the wall and pick up something else.

As a reader, I want to thank James McBride with leaving me with some jewels that I shall always remember: " DDL whose rights were limited to only their remake did a sequel in called King Kong Lives but they still needed Universal's permission to do so.
Toho's interpretation differed greatly from the original in size and abilities. Among kaiju , King Kong was suggested to be among the most powerful in terms of raw physical force, possessing strength and durability that rivaled that of Godzilla.
As one of the few mammal-based kaiju, Kong's most distinctive feature was his intelligence. He demonstrated the ability to learn and adapt to an opponent's fighting style, identify and exploit weaknesses in an enemy, and utilize his environment to stage ambushes and traps.
In King Kong vs. This version of Kong was given the ability to harvest electricity as a weapon and draw strength from electrical voltage.
This version was more similar to the original, where he relied on strength and intelligence to fight and survive. Elements of King Kong's character remained in the film, reflected in Godzilla's uncharacteristic behavior and attraction to the female character Daiyo.
Toho Studios wanted to remake King Kong vs. Godzilla , which was the most successful of the entire Godzilla series of films, in to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film, as well as to celebrate Godzilla's upcoming 40th anniversary.
However, they were unable to obtain the rights to use Kong, and initially intended to use Mechani-Kong as Godzilla's next adversary.
But it was soon learned that even using a mechanical creature who resembled Kong would be just as problematic legally and financially for them.
As a result, the film became Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , with no further attempts to use Kong in any way.
Both Kong and Skull Island were referenced and made multiple appearances in the film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
King Kong, as well as the series of films featuring him, have been featured many times in popular culture outside of the films themselves, in forms ranging from straight copies to parodies and joke references, and in media from comic books to video games.
The Beatles ' animated film Yellow Submarine includes a scene of the characters opening a door to reveal King Kong abducting a woman from her bed.
It ends with King Homer marrying Marge and eating her father [ citation needed ]. The animated film Chicken Little features a scene parodying King Kong, as Fish out of Water starts stacking magazines thrown in a pile, eventually becoming a model of the Empire State Building and some plane models, as he imitates King Kong in the iconic scene from the original film.
The controversial World War II Dutch resistance fighter Christiaan Lindemans —eventually arrested on suspicion of having betrayed secrets to the Nazis—was nicknamed "King Kong" due to his being exceptionally tall.
