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.

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. View 2 comments. May 30, Raymond rated it liked it.

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: " The best way I can describe it is back to the roller coaster analogy.
However, there are two coasters. One with several hills, flips and dips. And, another that looks like it is going to thrill you, but once you get on, you realize that it is all an optical illusion.
It is just a baby roller coaster that you wish you never stood in line for. Unfortunately, Deacon King Kong is the latter.
Jan 15, Will rated it it was amazing Shelves: giveaways. James McBride has written an entertaining and very funny, witty novel with laugh-out-loud dialogue and even a touch of slapstick.
However, while humorous, this is also a very serious and disturbing novel as McBride confronts issues of racism and the problems that often spring from public housing such as poor conditions, violence and drugs.
A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles 4. A tricky balance, but one that McBride handles successfully, as he has in his previous work.
Set in New York, a large cast of characters populate the book and give voice to the story: those living in public housing and its church members, police, drug dealers and those involved in Italian organized crime.
McBride excels here, his characters come to life, some nearly jumping off the page. While the characters can often be comic in nature, McBride also writes scenes that are heartfelt and true, scenes of great poignancy.
I must return to the dialogue in regards to the characters. The affectionate verbal sparring between the central character, Sportcoat, and his friend Hot Sausage, two elderly drunks, is simply priceless.
The next time a friend is talking crazy nonsense, I hope I remember the expression Is your cheese done slid off your cracker? I had never heard that one and it, along with many others, delighted me.
As far as the narrative itself, this is where I could pick at things and I needed to step back for a few days before a final rating and review.
McBride takes the reader on a wild ride. Unfortunately, at times, I thought it all a bit convoluted with a raise of an eyebrow at certain turns in the plot.
While completely enjoying the ride, I had some mixed feelings on structure and whether the story worked completely. I had to stop and remind myself that this really is, in essence, a comedic novel and that what I was apt to criticize was generally in keeping with that basic concept.
In the end, I decided that I had such a good time that I could ignore that need to pick at the plot details.
This book was a balm for my soul, a portrait of a black church community circa with sweet characters well, most of them , interconnections that stretch back decades, and a plot with more than one mystery at its heart.
I loved it. But more terrifying is the head—a nightmare head with bloodshot eyes and jagged teeth set under a thick mat of hair, a face half-beast half-human".
O'Brien on the other hand, wanted him to be almost human-like to gain audience empathy, and told Delgado to "make that ape almost human".
The end result which was rejected was described as looking like a missing link. For example, Delgado streamlined the body by removing the distinctive paunch and rump of a gorilla.
Cooper was very fond of strong, hard-sounding words that started with the letter "K". Some of his favorite words were " Komodo ", " Kodiak " and " Kodak ".
Cooper's friend Douglas Burden's trip to the island of Komodo and his encounter with the Komodo dragons was a big influence on the Kong story.
He loved the name, as it had a "mystery sound" to it. It was simply referred to as " The Beast ". RKO executives were unimpressed with the bland title.
David O. Selznick suggested Jungle Beast as the film's new title,  but Cooper was unimpressed and wanted to name the film after the main character.
He stated he liked the "mystery word" aspect of Kong's name and that the film should carry "the name of the leading mysterious, romantic, savage creature of the story" such as with Dracula and Frankenstein.
Because David O. Selznick thought that audiences would think that the film, with the one word title of Kong , would be mistaken as a docudrama like Grass and Chang , which were one-word titled films that Cooper had earlier produced, he added the "King" to Kong's name in order to differentiate it.
In his first appearance in King Kong , Kong was a gigantic prehistoric ape. Like most simians, Kong possesses semi-human intelligence and great physical strength.
Kong's size changes drastically throughout the course of the film. While creator Merian C. Cooper envisioned Kong as being " 40 to 50 feet tall ",  animator Willis O'Brien and his crew built the models and sets scaling Kong to be only 18 feet 5.
This did not stop Cooper from playing around with Kong's size as he directed the special effect sequences; by manipulating the sizes of the miniatures and the camera angles, he made Kong appear a lot larger than O'Brien wanted, even as large as 60 feet I was a great believer in constantly changing Kong's height to fit the settings and the illusions.
He's different in almost every shot; sometimes he's only 18 feet tall and sometimes 60 feet or larger. This broke every rule that O'Bie and his animators had ever worked with, but I felt confident that if the scenes moved with excitement and beauty, the audience would accept any height that fitted into the scene.
For example, if Kong had only been 18 feet high on the top of the Empire State Building, he would have been lost, like a little bug; I constantly juggled the heights of trees and dozens of other things.
The one essential thing was to make the audience enthralled with the character of Kong so that they wouldn't notice or care that he was 18 feet high or 40 feet, just as long as he fitted the mystery and excitement of the scenes and action.
Concurrently, the Kong bust made for the film was built in scale with a foot Godzilla and King Kong Escapes. For more details on these versions of the character, see below.
This resulted in King Kong This Kong was an upright walking anthropomorphic ape, appearing even more human-like than the original.
Also like the original, this Kong had semi-human intelligence and vast strength. In the film, Kong was scaled to be 42 feet This Kong had more or less the same appearance and abilities, but tended to walk on his knuckles more often and was enlarged, scaled to 60 feet Universal Studios had planned to do a King Kong remake as far back as They finally followed through almost 30 years later, with a three-hour film directed by Peter Jackson.
Jackson opted to make Kong a gigantic silverback gorilla without any anthropomorphic features. This Kong looked and behaved more like a real gorilla: he had a large herbivore's belly, walked on his knuckles without any upright posture, and even beat his chest with his palms as opposed to clenched fists.
In order to ground his Kong in realism, Jackson and the Weta Digital crew gave a name to his fictitious species Megaprimatus kong and suggested it to have evolved from the Gigantopithecus.
Kong was the last of his kind. He was portrayed in the film as being quite old, with graying fur and battle-worn with scars, wounds, and a crooked jaw from his many fights against rival creatures.
He is the dominant being on the island, the king of his world. But, like his film predecessors, he possesses considerable intelligence and great physical strength; he also appears far more nimble and agile.
This Kong was scaled to a consistent height of 25 feet 7. We assumed that Kong is the last surviving member of his species. He's the last of the huge gorillas that live on Skull Island He's a very lonely creature, absolutely solitary.
It must be one of the loneliest existences you could ever possibly imagine. Every day, he has to battle for his survival against very formidable dinosaurs on the island, and it's not easy for him.
He's carrying the scars of many former encounters with dinosaurs. And he has never felt a single bit of empathy for another living creature in his long life; it has been a brutal life that he's lived.
In the film Kong: Skull Island , Kong is scaled to be feet He also stated that the original look was the inspiration for the design, saying:.
This is something that is its own species. That version is very much a scaled-up silverback gorilla, and ours is something that is slightly more exaggerated.
A big mandate for us was, How do we make this feel like a classic movie monster? Co-producer Mary Parent also stated that Kong is still young and not fully grown as she explains, "Kong is an adolescent when we meet him in the film; he's still growing into his role as alpha".
While one of the most famous movie icons in history, King Kong's intellectual property status has been questioned since his creation, featuring in numerous allegations and court battles.
The rights to the character have always been split up with no single exclusive rights holder. Different parties have also contested that various aspects are public domain material and therefore ineligible for copyright status.
When Merian C. Cooper created King Kong, he assumed that he owned the character, which he had conceived in , outright. Cooper maintained that he had only licensed the character to RKO for the initial film and sequel, but had otherwise owned his own creation.
In , Cooper began to feel something was amiss when he was trying to get a Tarzan vs. King Kong project off the ground for Pioneer Pictures where he had assumed management of the company.
After David O. Selznick suggested the project to Cooper, the flurry of legal activity over using the Kong character that followed—Pioneer had become a completely independent company by this time and access to properties that RKO felt were theirs was no longer automatic—gave Cooper pause as he came to realize that he might not have full control over this product of his own imagination after all.
Cooper had assumed his rights were unassailable and was bitterly opposed to the project. In he filed a lawsuit to enjoin distribution of the movie against John Beck, as well as Toho and Universal the film's U.
Cooper's executive assistant, Charles B. FitzSimons, stated that these companies should be negotiating through him and Cooper for such licensed products and not RKO.
In a letter to Robert Bendick, Cooper stated:. My hassle is about King Kong. I created the character long before I came to RKO and have always believed I retained subsequent picture rights and other rights.
Cooper and his legal team offered up various documents to bolster the case that Cooper owned King Kong and had only licensed the character to RKO for two films, rather than selling him outright.
Many people vouched for Cooper's claims, including David O. Selznick, who had written a letter to Mr. Without these letters, it seemed Cooper's rights were relegated to the Lovelace novelization that he had copyrighted he was able to make a deal for a Bantam Books paperback reprint and a Gold Key comic adaptation of the novel, but that was all that he could do.
Cooper's lawyer had received a letter from John Beck's lawyer, Gordon E. Youngman, that stated:. For the sake of the record, I wish to state that I am not in negotiation with you or Mr.
Cooper or anyone else to define Mr. Cooper's rights in respect of King Kong. His rights are well defined, and they are non-existent, except for certain limited publication rights.
It seems my hassle over King Kong is destined to be a protracted one. They'd make me sorry I ever invented the beast, if I weren't so fond of him!
Makes me feel like Macbeth : "Bloody instructions which being taught return to plague the inventor. The rights over the character did not flare up again until , when Universal Studios and Dino De Laurentiis were fighting over who would be able to do a King Kong remake for release the following year.
During the legal battles that followed, which eventually included RKO countersuing Universal, as well as De Laurentiis filing a lawsuit claiming interference, Colonel Richard Cooper Merian's son and now head of the Cooper estate jumped into the fray.
During the battles, Universal discovered that the copyright of the Lovelace novelization had expired without renewal, thus making the King Kong story a public domain one.
Universal argued that they should be able to make a movie based on the novel without infringing on anyone's copyright because the characters in the story were in the public domain within the context of the public domain story.
In a four-day bench trial in Los Angeles, Judge Manuel Real made the final decision and gave his verdict on November 24, , affirming that the King Kong novelization and serialization were indeed in the public domain, and Universal could make its movie as long as it did not infringe on original elements in the RKO film,  which had not passed into the public domain  Universal postponed their plans to film a King Kong movie, called The Legend of King Kong , for at least 18 months, after cutting a deal with Dino De Laurentiis that included a percentage of box office profits from his remake.
However, on December 6, , Judge Real made a subsequent ruling, which held that all the rights in the name, character, and story of King Kong outside of the original film and its sequel belonged to Merian C.
