About the Book

Three Black Boys is an urban-fiction novel by Zangba Thomson that is intense as it is pointed and dark. This vivid, savvy, and altogether street-smart debut marks a bold new voice in literary fiction.

The setting is South-side Jamaica, a neighborhood in Queens, New York, and home to Babita Harris, an Indian immigrant plagued with the deadly black fever disease. With a couple of months to live, her only hope of survival is a costly liver transplant. But with no health insurance, the chance of a surgery is slim. What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash.

Barnes, her only son, along with his two friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money. Though their road is paved with good intentions, the brothers in arms will be in for more than a few surprises and a whole lot of heat.

Q&A

"If there is no struggle, there is no progress." - Frederick Douglass

How do you define success?

Zangba: If you have a dream, or a goal in life, and you are making the right decisions towards fulfilling that dream or goal, then you are on the path to success. Once you fulfill that dream or goal, you are successful in that one thing you have fulfilled. Some people are successful at nothing. Some are successful in one thing. Some are successful in many things.

How do you deal with writer's block?

Zangba: I got 99 problems but writer’s block ain’t one. That’s because I follow this simple advice: ”When coming to an impasse, change; having changed, you can get through.” – I Ching

First, I map things out, from beginning to end. After visualizing the whole story, I transfer that intellectual thought into a Word document. If I write myself into a corner, I change the narrative, or change my thought. This frees my mind and allows me to continue writing.
