This book is a great tribute to a great man, Ralph Ellison, author of Invisible Man. It inspired this work of literature, by being the exact opposite of this book: a less than forthright account of a Black man who somehow was the polar opposite of what Mr. Ellison actually was in real life. So the character in it reminded the author far too much of herself, and not of a typical Black man. She ended up writing a book that was a lot more like the actual life of Ralph Ellison than his

Enlightening!

I found this book to be highly enlightening! It's a book of extraordinary writing and wildly peculiar ideas - magical realism. An intriguing story of four young friends (featuring a LOT of other people too!) with open minds, great work ethics and itchy feet. Sometimes, it is best to sit back, relax and just weigh up the pros and cons of a certain situation, problem or life in general. Then, a certain amount of ribald humor comes in handy, too. Why worry about everyday life, when it

"To Jesse Jackson, who's Protestant but who thinks he's President."
It's lines like these that kept me short-yelping with unexpected laughter throughout this quirky, completely fascinating book. With scalpel sharp commentary the author manages to convey the pathos and the poignancy of ordinary life for ordinary people. The best part, however, is the hilarious, witty dialogue and the adroit delivery. This book was a surprise treasure and I recommend it - especially if you don't mind a challenging

This was a well written and highly entreating book. It is packed with humor and satire, but the best part is that it deals with the goings on of every day life with regular people. Another important aspect to this book is that Karen S. Cole included people with different backgrounds and different ethnicities. Good book.

This is the most original, provocative, new ideas book I've read anywhere. It is all-inclusive, funny as hell, upbeat in a way more Alaskan Bush People than Mary Poppins, featuring folks of color in starring roles, interspersed with "good ol" white people in true Bugs Bunny, Warner Brothers style, while walking into a Bar...and falling down!
