Quick overview CoCo Higgins lives in the shadow of her famous artistic father, who has made his name painting nude paintings of her mother. The same mother that walked out of her life when she was only nine years old. Together with her sister, and a baby brother who is obviously not her father’s child, they live with this man, who can only truly communicate on canvas.

Ten years later CoCo gets a scholarship to the prestigious Art Academy in London. There she finds herself following in her father’s footsteps; the same college, the same boarding house with the same landlady. CoCo throws herself into new experiences; the bohemian world of ‘70’s London where love, sex, drugs and a wild evening in the Bunny Club are all part of CoCo’s liberated exciting life.

Until that fateful Monday morning when a new life drawing model turns up in college. She would recognise that body anywhere, she saw it often enough in her father’s paintings. CoCo comes face to face with the woman she hasn’t seen since she was nine years old.

HARLEM SHUFFLE is driven by an ingeniously intricate plot that plays out in a beautifully recreated Harlem of the early 1960s. It's a family saga masquerading as a crime novel, a hilarious morality play, a social novel about race and power, and ultimately a love letter to Harlem.
