Racial and sexual politics collide in this cult classic that launched Laferriere as one of North America's finest literary provocateurs"A heady meditation, a psychic tussle that resonates with the furious stuff in James Baldwin's essays or Louis Armstrong's smiling trumpet or Martin Luther King's oratory honest, brash, unsappy, new." The Village Voice"Sexual politics at its best and most literal. There are layers and layers of meaning to be untangled in this novel. It is at once humorous, profound, ribald and relentlessly didactic." Charlatan"Crackles and snaps with the profane and profound power of Jack Kerouac, Henry Miller James Baldwin and Charles Bukowski." The Edmonton JournalBrilliant and tense, Dany Laferriere's first novel, How to Make Love to a Negro without Getting Tired, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in 1985. With raunchy humor and a working-class intellectualism, Laferriere's narrator wanders the slums of Montreal, has sex with white women, and writes a book to save his life.With this novel, Laferriere began a series of internationally acclaimed social and political novels about the love of the world, and the world of sex, including Heading South and I Am a Japanese Writer.
