Product description


"Whitehead's most enjoyable book--warm and funny, carefully observed, and beautifully written, studded with small moments of pain and epiphany....Whiehead seems to be having the time of his life; one can almost feel him relaxing into this book as if it actually were the summer home of his youth....The humor of 'Sag Harbor'--which reaches its apex in a scene involving seminal mid-'80s hip hop group UTFO's appearance at the local waffle cone emporium, where the rapper known as Dr. Ice provides some astute medical advice--is twinned by pain. It is Benji's uncertainty about everything that gives him such perspective, imbues even his most casual observations with a sheen of elegiac wisdom....tense, lush, poignant--'Sag Harbor' at its most satisfying."--The Boston Globe

"Sea-breeze buoyant....teasingly self-aware spirit.....hilariously trifling intricacies of this self-discovery process. Credit Mr. Whitehead with this: He captures the fire flies of teenage summertime in a jar....What's best about Sag Harbor is the utter and sometimes mortifying accuracy of its descriptive details....equally aware of the tiny nuances of teen culture....When this book's range encompasses kids, parents, community, tradition and history simultaneously, Mr. Whitehead's recovered memories don't seem so trivial after all." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Whitehead’s delicious language and sarcastic, clever voice fit this teenager who’s slowly constructing himself….It’s time for us to hear more post-black stories like this.”–The New York Times Book Review

“In his ebullient, supremely confident fourth novel….offers such pleasures only a grump would complain….Debates and disquisitions about the timeless ephemera of pop culture appear in realistic proportion, and the resulting humor feels earned rather than easy, because of its thematic relevance and, above all, Whitehead’s skill with voice and character….come off the page with energy and pathos.” San Diego Union Tribune

"[Sag Harbor] surges and sings, sifting pop-culture debris down to nuggets of realization....Sag Harbor illustrates the author's artistic maturation. Whereas Whitehead's wise earlier works often resist service to our sentiments, his clever new novel stokes our emotions and intellect at once." -- Dallas Morning News

“The inventive, gifted Whitehead….registers the minutia of ‘80s culture….effortlessly readable….masterful at re-creating the organized chaos of the teenage mind. ‘Sag Harbor’ moves between vignettes with the urgency and awareness of a kid still mesmerized by the mundane….offers a loving exploration….By opting to show, rather than describe, their innocence, Whitehead recalls its allure. And what better time to reminisce over that than summer?”–Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Sag Harbor is also rich in 1985–the sportswear, the radio hits, the sudden and unaccountable appearance of New Coke….Whitehead’s stylistic talents are amply on display….[he] has a David Foster Wallace-esque knack for punctuating meticulously figurative constructions with deadpan slacker wit….You can’t help but admire Whitehead’s writerly gifts.”–The Los Angeles Times

“Whitehead has tapped the most classic summer-novel activity of all: nostalgia…..The pleasure is in the way Whitehead recalls it, in loving and lingering detail.”–Time

“Remarkably genial for a book about the trauma of finding yourself, not to mention about being black in America…. [Whitehead] can write sentences like nobody’s business and the deepest satisfaction in this book full of them is his crafty turn of phrase…..light in the best sense, buoyed by its seriousness–a book you could read on the beach but by no means a beach read.”--Bloomberg

Praise for Sag Harbor

“Pure shimmering brilliance. Colson Whitehead’s affecting new novel joyously lights up a place, a time, a family, and one unforgettable young man. It is also one of the funniest books I’ve ever read, a book loaded with the kind of humor that can only soar off a heartbreaking sadness.”
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Absurdistan and The Russian Debutante’s Handbook

Praise for Colson Whitehead

“No novelist writing today is more engaging and entertaining when it comes to questions of race, class, and commercial culture than Colson Whitehead.” —USA Today

“[Whitehead] takes on a multitude of issues with a rich and probing imagination. His reputation is likely to soar.” —Ishmael Reed, Washington Post Book World

“[Whitehead] writes wonderfully, commanding a lush, poetic, mellifluous prose instrument.” —The Nation
