As the twenties roared and the Harlem renaissance thrived, a young woman from rural Florida became the toast of literary New York. Jump at the Sun chronicles the passionate life of Zora Neale Hurston (author of “Their Eyes Are Watching God”) who went from spinning tales on the front porch of a country store, to writing prize-winning stories, novels and plays. Imbued with the rhymes and rhythms of the Jazz Age, Hurston’s story reveals a woman’s ferocious appetite for life, literature and love.
