Turning every contemporary political and social movement on its head--from feminism to nationalism to jingoism--this boistrois and irreverent novel manages to be by turns hilarious and totally serious.
"One of the funniest satires of university politics I've ever read. Ishmael Reed is funnier than Norman Mailer or Gore Vidal." --Leslie Marmon Silko
"Reed is, as always, an American original; a wiseguy whose wisdom is the real thing," --The Boston Sunday Globe
