From former SNL writer and “Weekend Update” host Colin Quinn comes a controversial and laugh-out-loud investigation into cultural and ethnic stereotypes.

Colin Quinn has noticed a trend—Americans’ increasing political correctness has forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity. Every ethnic group has differences and this diversity should be celebrated, not denied. So why has acknowledging cultural differences become so taboo?

In The Coloring Book, Quinn mixes his own personal experiences with incredibly candid and hilarious conversations with people from different ethnic groups to discover which stereotypes they find funny, which stereotypes are based on truths, which have become totally distorted over time, and which are actually offensive to each group, and why.

As it pokes holes in the tapestry of fear that has overtaken discussions about race, The Coloring Book serves as an antidote to our paralysis when it comes to laughing at ourselves … and others.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this amazing new book, you get a side of his humor and perspective that has never been on display quite like this. It’s gorgeous, it’s hilarious, it’s brilliant.”

    Jerry Seinfeld, American comedian, actor, and New York Times bestselling author

  • “Colin Quinn has always been a great comedian and a great actor, and now you have to call him a great author, as well. This book is like Roots with way more jokes. Once you read The Coloring Book you’ll realize that Colin Quinn is the white Richard Pryor.”

    Chris Rock, American actor, comedian, voice artist, and New York Times bestselling author

  • “The heat-cooked asphalt and glass-strewn streets that helped shape the author’s former hard-living ways are, indeed, a richly textured font of engrossing escapades. Quinn excels best when recounting his alcohol-soaked adventures.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Colin Quinn tackles issues of race and ethnicity in this exploration of stereotypes, comedy, and political correctness. As a narrator, he proves reasonably good though his narration pales in comparison to his ability on stage. His deep, raspy voice and New York accent capture his prose well…His writing has energy and good timing…[and] he provides insights on how we deal with race and stereotypes.”
