Above Sugar Hill by Linda Mannheim

Product Information

 This outstanding collection is our Book of the Month for May
 
Above Sugar Hill is an unforgettable collection of short stories set in Washington Heights, New York City. Located between 145th and 181st Street – roads no one from outside the neighbourhood is expected to visit. It is a visceral, vital work of site-specific fiction. 
These tales of New York take place between 1973 and 2001 – a Puerto Rican Independentista fends off the FBI, a young girl spots Marilyn Monroe more than ten years after Monroe’s suicide, an opera-singing housing activist goes missing and presumed to have been murdered. Above Sugar Hill is a literary map of Upper Manhattan memories, uncompromising narratives and complicated truths. 
“Where I come from is tiny,” observes the narrator of one of the stories. “Women run the short block screaming when their purses get snatched. Blam blams and the fire of flying heat cut the night.”
