Reviews

"Erasure is as watertight and hilarious a satire as, say, [Evelyn Waugh's] Scoop . . . [Everett] is a first-rate word wrangler." --Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian "With equal measures of sympathy and satire, [Erasure] craftily addresses the highly charged issue of being 'black enough' in America." --Jenifer Berman, The New York Times Book Review "An over-the-top masterpiece. . . . Percival's talent is multifaceted, sparked by a satiric brilliance that could place him alongside Wright and Ellison as he skewers the conventions of racial and political correctness." --Publishers Weekly "A scathingly funny look at racism and the book business: editors, publishers, readers, and writers alike." --Booklist "More genuine and tender than much of Everett's previous work, but no less impressive intellectually: a high point in an already substantial literary career." --Kirkus Reviews "The sharp satire on American publishers and American readers that Everett puts forward is delicious, though it won't win him many friends among the sentimental educated class who want to read something serious about black inner-city life without disturbing any of their stereotypes." --Chicago Tribune
