By Percival Everett

I figured this is a book by the author of I am Not Sidney Poitier, which I really liked, even though this book was not on the list of books at the beginning of this one. Well, that's because this book was published 4 years before the Not Sidney came out. This is something that is hard to tell by the cover. Anyway, this book was different. Less comical. It actually reminded me of The Tortilla Curtain in some ways, though it wasn't as bad (in terms of horrible things happening to characters). It was a good read. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the subtle jokes amidst the seriousness of bigotry and hate crimes. [207 pp.]
