How to Make Love to a Negro without Getting Tired: A Novel

Dany Laferrière, David Homel
$19.95


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

Brilliant and tense, Dany Laferrière'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, Laferrière's narrator wanders the slums of Montreal, has sex with white women, and writes a book to save his life.

With this novel, Laferrière 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.
