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.
