The year is 1927, and Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes are feverish with youth, gin, and artistic ambition. They are riding high on the achievements of the Harlem Renaissance – the most dynamic and shocking literary movement in American history. To make their mark on the world, they decide to write an authentic African-American opera rooted in the folktales and songs of the South ... The novel Harlem Mosaics is based entirely on true events. In lyrical prose that evokes the heady 1920’s, it tells a story that reads as a cautionary tale, a love story, and a social novel, reintroducing us to these brilliant and important artists. Whit Frazier is an American author, originally from New York, now living in Stuttgart with his wife and two daughters. He works as an English teacher for VHS, is attending the University of Stuttgart for his Masters in Anglistik, and is currently working on another novel.
