Stephen L. Carter's first novel, The Emperor of Ocean Park, was published in 2002, but this Yale Law School professor had been writing significant, memorable nonfiction for more than a decade already. Like its predecessor, New England White touches on issues of race, class, and influence. At the center of the novel are college president Lemaster Carlyle and his wife, Julia, a deputy divinity school dean. This sympathetic couple represent a new breed of prominent, well-connected African Americans who navigate with ease in the mainly white power structure. Their security begins to wobble dangerously as Julia investigates the hidden motive behind a murder in their community. A well-crafted literary novel that grapples with serious social and ethical issues.
