This excerpt is taken from the first time collaboration between authors Ran Walker and Sabin Prentis. The original collection of short stories explores the lives of four people who occupy a brownstone in a heavily gentrified neighborhood in the city of New Hollis. Each of the stories in Floor Floors examine the intersection of gentrification, hip-hop, love, life, and how to make sense of it all. This excerpt is about a former DJ who is finding a new life after parole. This excerpt is featured with permission from Caps & Sneakers Studios in conjunction with Fielding Books.
