Critically acclaimed author Touré's writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Best American Essays, and The New York Times.

This playful and hip fantasy is the tale of a utopian city, where residents can attend St. Pimp's House of Baptist Rapture, and the candidates for mayor battle to determine who the better DJ is. Into this wonderful place comes Cadillac Jackson, a journalist who falls for the beautiful and magical Mahogany Sunflower - whose family members can fly. Download and start listening now!

    " this is the most skillful hideous/gorgeous magi-real satire book by a U.S.American that i've possibly ever read. very garcia marquez. very loving and critical of "Black culture." can't claim to have caught ALL the references and ALL the cameos but... so glad i stumbled upon it in the stacks. "

    " \The imaginative book tells the history and current happenings of Soul City, a fictitious Harlem on steroids. I loved it. I wish it were real and I could escape there during a bout of race fatigue "

    " ***Review to come later...FYI, I didn't find it to be that great. Imaginative, yes, but not very well thought out. "

    " Insane. But I can't say i didn't enjoy it. That would be a lie. :-) "

    " I love this book! When I'm in between good readings, I often go back to it. Hilarious! "

    " I LOVED this book! It pulls a lot from African American history to build teh characters and tell the story. Very creative in how it is written and "soulful", but not in the way you'd expect "

    " A decent follow up to the Portable Promised Land, this was indeed an entertaining read, though it's tongue-in-cheeck cynicism and reliance on pop references to keep it's satirical narrative going get somewhat tiresome. "

    " I'm sure this was meant to be a fable, but it came across flat, stereotypical, and racist to me. I guess I'm not able to read it through the right lens. "

    " This is the first book I have read by this author. It was ok, but it wouldn't necessarily pick up another one of his books. "
