JEFFREY RENARD ALLEN’s novel SONG OF THE SHANK is about Thomas Wiggins, AKA Blind Tom, a legendary 19th-century African American pianist who has been almost entirely erased from the history books. Born a slave and a musical savant, Tom was a stage sensation, though there are no recordings of his performances. But in the talented hands of Jeffery Renard Allen, Tom’s story becomes a stunning novel that blends history and fantastical invention.In conversation with editorial director of Graywolf press, Ethan Nosowsky.
