A working knowledge of the life of ex senator Strom Thurmond 1902 2003 is not required to revel in this epistolary comedy Thurmond was a racist and bigoted senator who in a century of existence perpetrated than the average level of hypocritical capriciousness on the African American people This collaborative novel Everett s fingerprints prominent takes the satirical conceit of a notorious racist writing a racist history, and works a series of madcap correspondences around the proposition Spoof [...]

It s impressive to me that Everett and Kincaid manage to stretch out a single joke for 316 pages and somehow, they do, though of course they accomplish this by telling lots of little jokes, especially on themselves Academics tend to be impatientbut how many hours a week do you actually work, maybe 5 Though once or twice, I found myself bogging down in some of the letters it s an epistolary novel , and the end does hit you all at once, I haven t laughed as hard or as often while reading a novel i [...]

I m about 60 pages in and laughing hysterically I heart the Profs Everett and Kincaid.Alright, I am about 75 pages into the book and I think I have started hemorraging internally, perhaps a rupture of some godforsaken organ, due to my inability to stop laughing.Oh holy hell.


Lillian Walker Shelton

A very unlikely funny book It works


Tuck

i read this in 2004 and recommended it to many folks they just looked at me like i wanted them to read a glenn beck tirade their loss.


Devon

Just didn t hold my attention I expected it to be funnier than it was.


Tim

I had no idea what to expect as I began probably assumed the book would poke fun or seriously ridicule a real person s views on race a perspective from a racist Possibly an uncovering of a heart of gold underneath a journey of racism in earlier years Which It was billed as satire Instead, it was 80% about unfiltered assistants of Senator Thurmond, copiously writing all of their thoughts and sharing them with fictitious managers, editors, idea people at Simon Schuster Most of the back and forth [...]


Madison

If I could give this book a 3.5 I would but the rating system on does not give me that option This is an incredibly funny, at times trite, but overall entertaining novel Had I not picked up from the title alone that this book can only exist as a mad work of fiction, I would almost be inclined to accept this as a work of creative non fiction Picking up the tenor of the various conversations throughout the piece, the only real truth I can take from this is that may be somewhat of a glimpse into th [...]


Ryan Dilbert

The idea is funnier than the book It is a fictional account of agents, scholars and Strom Thurmond writing a book that this is the very long title It is in an interesting format memos and emails and such and touches upon greatness for seconds at a time, but is never great as a whole All in all, a fun and quirky book with a hint of social commentary.


Leroy Seat

This is a most interesting book, as it is all correspondence among the various characters in it It contains a lot of humor and satire.It was especially interesting to read this book as my son is an attorney who used to work for Senator Thurmond on Capitol Hill and because of that connection my wife and I were able to meet the Senator, who was quite a fascinating character.


Teresa

Loved the format of memos, emails and letters between characters, refreshing in this way The whole book is odd, a book about the possible writing of a book you know but it was really very good Also I found it hysterical not only when it came to politics but just the characters relationships and personalities Recommended for sure.


Shameema

The last quarter of the book feels like a drag to read with all its loquacity However the book itself remains extremely funny I was hoping to get of the subject matter in between all the funnies though Recommended for someone who wants to be a comic writer which is one of the hardest genres in my mind.The character of the writers are hilarious.


Suzanne

Percival Everett has shown once again how versatile an author he is This epistolary satire, while sometimes a bit off putting in its one dimensional politics, is funny and original While it is not my favorite book by Everett, it is funny and profound all at once.


peter

Not Everett s strongest book, even if it develops a great conceit The contrivance at its core becomes too unlikely and its humor and bite dull before its end But everything he writes has something highly worthwhile in it.


Diana Yildiz

What a strange book A book about the proposed writing of a book through letters, emails and various artifacts A witty satire, but a rather frustrating read.


Meghan

This book is kind of amazeballs.


Beata

James Kincaid was my favorite professor in college, so I absolutely had to read this, but unfortunately his wit and humor did not come across very clearly in this book I still like it though.


Steve

Well, it s got weirdness going for it Doesn t make it all that interesting, though.


Michael

Strange, searing and awesome satire.


Addison

This is fucking hysterical.


Shelley Ettinger

Is there nothing Percival Everett can t do


Kayne

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read in my entire life And it s all epistolary.I love Percival Everett s writing.


Chi Dubinski

A bizarre and hysterical book.


Nancy

Laugh out loud funny.


Larry

A maddeningly funny novel, with some of the most irritating characters in the history of literature.


Laura Ballance

Funny Not what I expected, but Percival Everett is like that isn t he
