Radio Golf

By August Wilson

Paperback £14.99

A real-estate developer sets about trying to redevelop the 'blighted' Hill District of Pittsburgh in the final part of August Wilson's Century Cycle, his epic dramatisation of the African American experience in the twentieth century. Foreword by Suzan-Lori Parks.

Ivy League-educated Harmond Wilks has a plan to redevelop Pittsburgh's Hill District, and hopes to become the town's first black mayor. But an old mansion slated for demolition, 1839 Wylie Avenue, turns out to have a significant past.

'I would encourage people to rave in the nonlinearity of his well-made plots, to big up his quirky architecture, to honor guard the house at 1839 Wylie so that it will always remain standing' - Suzan-Lori Parks, from her Foreword

Also published in hardback and as part of the Century Cycle boxed set.
