In SPEAKING IS EASY, SPEAKING OF WAR, and SPEAKING OF THE PAST, in between amateur sleuthing, Harlow, her husband David, her Irish NYPD detective lover Declan, and her best friend BB take in shows at the Lafayette Theater, dance the night away at the newly opened Savoy, and stuff their faces at Tillie’s Chicken Shack. This blog explores roaring twenties Harlem and all the music, magic, and mayhem that inspired the series. Enjoy!
