The runaway success of Go the F**ck to Sleep, Adam Mansbach’s children’s book for adults (whose title sums up the nightly exasperation of parents everywhere), has obscured the fact that Mansbach is first and foremost a novelist with a deep knowledge of hip hop and street culture that pops up in his fiction. His latest novel, Rage is Back, is about a legendary New York City graffiti artist who disappears after a row with a cop, and returns 16 years later to seek revenge (it’s also magic realist novel, so a magical staircase in DUMBO makes an appearance, too). He reads from the book tonight at powerHouse Arena, though he probably won’t mind if you bring your copy of GTFTS to sign. Before you go, check out his favorite spots for street art in New York, and the bedtime stories he actually reads his daughter.
