The Coloring Book
By

Rating
Colin Quinn has noticed a trend--Americans' increasing political correctness have forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity. Every ethnic group has differences and this diversity should be celebrated, not denied. So why has acknowledging cultural differences become so taboo? In The Coloring Book, Quinn mixes his own personal experiences with incredibly candid and hilarious conversations with people from different ethnic groups to discover which stereotypes they find funny, which stereotypes are based on truths, which have become totally distorted over time, and which are actually offensive to each group, and why. As it pokes holes in the tapestry of fear that has overtaken discussions about race, The Coloring Book serves as an antidote to our paralysis when it comes to laughing at ourselves...and others.

Reviews

"Any good comedian needs two things: an X-ray machine and a scalpel. The X-ray to find where the problem is, and the scalpel to start slicing it up. In the multiple decades Colin and I have been the closest of friends, he has always had two of the finest of these essential comedy tools I've ever seen. In this amazing new book, you get a side of his humor and perspective that has never been on display quite like this. It's gorgeous, it's hilarious, it's brilliant. You're lucky to get this. Not as lucky as I am, but very, very goddamn lucky. Just run home with it, shut up and be glad." -Jerry Seinfeld "Colin Quinn has always been a great comedian and a great actor, and now you have to call him a great author, as well. This book is like Roots with way more jokes. Once you read THE COLORING BOOK you'll realize that Colin Quinn is the white Richard Pryor." -Chris Rock
