About this product
- DescriptionThe classic freewheeling look at race relations through the ages. <i>Mumbo Jumbo</i> is Ishmael Reed's brilliantly satiric deconstruction of Western civilization, a racy and uproarious commentary on our society. In it, Reed, one of our preeminent African-American authors, mixes portraits of historical figures and fictional characters with sound bites on subjects ranging from ragtime to Greek philosophy. Cited by literary critic Harold Bloom as one of the five hundred most significant books in the Western can, <i>Mumbo Jumbo </i>is a trenchant and often biting look at black-white relations throughout history, from a keen observer of our culture.
- Author BiographyIshmael Reed, a novelist, poet, essayist, and activist, is the author of more than a dozen books. He has taught at Harvard, Yale, and Dartmouth and is currently a lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley. He lives in Oakland, California.
