Here's what two great writers have to say about this first novel by one of the most important creative writing teachers on the entire East Coast:

“Groove, Bang and Jive Around is the outside, breakthrough novel that inspired a generation of avant-garde writers to imitate the Cannon style. Representing a departure from old fogey African-American literary modernism, this funky, pre-Rap novel signaled a resurfacing of the irreverent, underground trickster tradition of black orature.”

-- Ishmael Reed

"An underground classic of such legendary stature that New York’s black cognoscenti have transmogrified the work into urban myth. Whenever the book comes up in conversation, eyes light with a glassy leer. 'You can't keep that book in your house, man! It's like a ghost! It just disappears!'

"Strange tales woven around a strange tale: The reason for its reputation is simple. First, until recently, you couldn’t find it. Not in used book stores. Not in book piles on the street. In fact, its author didn’t own a copy for well over twenty years. Second, it’s really filthy. And third, like a Loa in Haitian Voudon, it leaves the shelves of its host to possess another."

-- Darius James, author of Negrophobia and That's Blaxploitation!, writing for the New York Press
