Product Details

Praise

“One of the outstanding comic novels of the [sixties].” —The Boston Globe

“This satire peels back some uncomfortable layers of how the races see each other and is just as relevant today as it was in 1967, when it was published.” —The New York Times Sunday Book Review

“In dem the search for absolutes and the revelation of chaos beneath apparent order give this novel a mythopoetic resonance even as the concrete devices of fabulation and the dialectics of bitter, blue-black satire undermine the mythologies upon which the disintegrating lives of the white central characters depend.” —Johns S. Wright
