    “There are few authors as fluent as Wesley Brown in the secret language of American Cool – the post-war polyglot of street-smart outsiders. In Dance of the Infidels, Brown chronicles the smoky jazz clubs of a long-gone New York – a more innocent city fueled by jazz, not money. In these sharply observed, carefully intertwined stories, Brown brings a full cast of characters to life, including Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Cab Calloway and other jazz greats. In Brown’s deft hands, these legends become real, and their stories resonate through the decades. This superb collection offers proof of what novelist Mat Johnson calls Brown’s utterly rare brilliance.”
