Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed author Touré's writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Best American Essays, and The New York Times. This playful and hip fantasy is the tale of a utopian city, where residents can attend St. Pimp's House of Baptist Rapture, and the candidates for mayor battle to determine who the better DJ is. Into this wonderful place comes Cadillac Jackson, a journalist who falls for the beautiful and magical Mahogany Sunflower - whose family members can fly.

"Touré...offers an imaginative allegory on black culture filled with magic realism and biting social commentary." (Booklist)
"Imaginative, buoyant and slyly funny, this satire by magazine writer Touré a delight to read and a pleasure to hum along to." (Publishers Weekly)
