Praise

“This is a book that turns you on; it tells you how it feels to be a young, black male American in a permissive society of white women.”
—Chester Himes, author of If He Hollers, Let Him Go

“Flimflamboyantly erotic … audacious … dramatic … Mr. Brown is a born pornographer gone straight.”
The New York Times

“Brown’s best-selling The Life and Loves of Mr. Jiveass Nigger, published in 1969, [is] a picaresque novel ˆ la Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones, infused with a Black Power sensibility.”
—Scott McLemee
