Block's highly acclaimed and oft-praised novel tells the story of JB, a young African American man living in the fictional town of Carthage, in the early days of the 20th century. JB is a skilled carpenter who is also a member of the all-black jitterbugging troupe known as the Slaughterhouse Five. When white men start harassing the jitterbugs, JB takes it upon himself to stand up for his friends. But as tensions mount, JB must choose between his own beliefs and the safety of those he loves.

Dense and atmospheric, A Dance at the Slaughterhouse is a story of courage, friendship, and the lasting effects of racism. It is a novel that will stay with readers for a long time.; 8vo; FSA.
