Review:

James Baldwin A great writer.

The New York Times Part vision, part satire, part farce...A wholly original, unholy cross between the craft of fiction and witchcraft.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Author of Colored people From its title on, Mumbo Jumbo serves as a critique of black and Western literary forms and conventions, and of the complex relationships between the two.

The Boston Globe Brilliant, phantasmal, eccentric...A visionary comic myth.

The Saturday Review A "HooDoo" thriller, an all-out assault on Western civilization...Reed's best novel.
