Ishmael Reed, who was honored with the MacArthur genius award, is a Pulitzer Prize finalist and two-time nominee for the National Book Award. Mumbo Jumbo, a literary masterpiece, is an ironic and unconventional detective story infused with African-American cultural heritage. A strange psychic epidemic called Jes Grew is spreading through the country, affecting millions. PaPa LaBas, a HooDoo detective, is trying to find the origins of the Jes Grew - not because he wants to cure it, but because he's ready for a new kind of society.

    " I think this is a book that I would have really enjoyed when it came out; a work that would have been way more powerful in its time than it is now. "

    " Hybrid-genre, hybrid-histories, hybrid-aesthetics--Mumbo Jumbo is a great, quick postmodern novel that reads like an optimistic David Lynch screenplay. "

    " Rumored to be a classic and seemingly right up my literary alley, this book is unfortunately and impossible to read mess that offers the reader nothing of value. A near complete waste of time. "

    " An intense and intricate novel that treats the jazz as an epidemic rather than a musical movement. I have never had to research so much for a novel in my entire life but it was 100% worth it. "
