About the Author

James McBride is the author of the National Book Award winner and New York Times bestseller The Good Lord Bird, the bestselling novels Song Yet Sung and Miracle at St Anna, and the No. 1 New York Times bestseller The Color of Water, which has sold more than two million copies. He is also a saxophonist and composer who teaches music to children in the Red Hook Brooklyn housing projects, where he was born, and a professor of journalism at NYU.


Thoughtful and probing . . . when McBride digs in, especially when describing the music - that massive, unstoppable, titanic, world-shaking accomplishment - by virtue of his own training as a saxophonist, he does so with great warmth, insight and frequent wit . . . James McBride's welcome elucidation of these points is clear, deeply felt and unmistakable - NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWThe definitive look at one of the greatest, most important entertainers, The Godfather, Da Number One Soul Brother, Mr Please, Please HimselfThe astonishing tangle of greatness and mayhem that was James Brown is embedded in this book. Honestly, it's not a musical biography. It's more than that. It conjures not just the man but the groove itselfThe author of the best-selling memoir THE COLOR OF WATER and the National Book Award-winning novel THE GOOD LORD BIRD turns out to also be the biographer of James Brown we've all been waiting for . . . McBride's true subject is race and poverty in a country that doesn't want to hear about it, unless compelled by a voice that demands to be heard - NEW YORK MAGAZINE
