 About the Book 

Seven years have gone by and three novels have appeared since the publication of How To Make Love To a Negro catapulted Dany Laferriere to instant celebrity. Now Laferriere returns to the arena of How To Make Love To a Negro in this searing,MoreSeven years have gone by and three novels have appeared since the publication of How To Make Love To a Negro catapulted Dany Laferriere to instant celebrity. Now Laferriere returns to the arena of How To Make Love To a Negro in this searing, often hilarious look at the great Whore of America: Success. Is it possible to be a writer when women stop you on the street and make you justify the title of your first book? What happens to a serious young black writer when his media persona takes over? Sex, race, fame and class: Laferriere covers all the bases. At the same time, he explores black culture, never afraid to take on black icons-Spike Lee, Miles Davis, Magic Johnson, Toni Morrison - and stand them on their heads. Fiercely independent, piercing, insolent, and always well informed: no wonder hes been compared to James Baldwin and Charles Bukowski.
