Description

"Laferriere's scintillating American debut recounts the sexual adventures of an eclectic cast of characters In each story-like chapter, Laferriere reveals the workings of race, class, and colonialism in Haitian society and the manipulative sexual power that underlies it all." -- Publisher's Weekly

Racial and sexual politics collide in this cult classic that launched Laferriere as one of North America's finest literary provocateurs.

Brilliant and tense, Dany Laferriere's first novel, How to Make Love to a Negro without Getting Tired, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in 1985. With raunchy humor and a working-class intellectualism, Laferriere's narrator wanders the slums of Montreal, has sex with white women, and writes a book to save his life.

With this novel, Laferriere began a series of internationally acclaimed social and political novels about the love of the world, and the world of sex, including Heading South and I Am a Japanese Writer.
