Hilton Als was at the shop to discuss his second book of essays White Girls (Penguin) with writer and journalist Bridget Minamore. In thirteen astonishing portraits New Yorker theatre critic Hilton Als limns the vital subjects of race, sexuality and gender under the general heading of ‘White Girls’, a heading that is for him expansive enough to include Flannery O’Connor, Eminem, Truman Capote and Malcolm X. Reminiscent of James Baldwin at his best and most wicked, Hilton Als leaves no precious stone unturned nor any sacred cow unscathed in his mission to inform, enlighten and entertain. Read, listen, enjoy and learn.
