Notes: An early draft of a novel—to date never commercially published—circulated to friends of the author. Bennett (who also wrote under several pseudonyms) is an African American Korean War vet who published a number of novels and non-fiction books while living as an expatriate in Mexico.
This is a first person narrative told from the perspective of a writer, with surreal or fantastic elements.
"Taken together, Bennett's novels constitute an extended saga of post-World War II African American life and a disturbing and satirical vision of the underside of American society"—Concise Oxford Companion to African American Literature.
