The most mesmerizing satirical work I’ve read so far about the hilarious myth of a “post-racial” America.
Beatty uses a provocative plot to capture the absurdity of the racist times we continue to live in.

I have to admit, many references went over my head, as I imagine they are deeply rooted in American culture, which might cause non-American readers to feel frustrated at times. But overall a book that deserves all the praise it has received.
