Ishmael Reed's inspired fable of the ragtime era, in which a social movement threatens to suppress the spread of black culture--hailed by Harold Bloom as one of the five hundred greatest books of the Western canon In 1920s America, a plague is spreading fast. From New Orleans to Chicago to New York, the "Jes Grew" epidemic makes people desperate to dance, overturning social norms in the process. Anyone is vulnerable and when they catch it, they'll bump and grind into a frenzy. Working to combat the Jes Grew infection are the puritanical Atonists, a group bent on cultivating a "Talking Android," an African American who will infiltrate the unruly black communities and help crush the outbreak. But PaPa LaBas, a houngan voodoo priest, is determined to keep his ancient culture--including a key spiritual text--alive.     Spanning a dizzying host of genres, from cinema to academia to mythology, Mumbo Jumbo is a lively ride through a key decade of American history. In addition to ragtime, blues, and jazz, Reed's allegory draws on the Harlem Renaissance, the Back to Africa movement, and America's occupation of Haiti. His style throughout is as avant-garde and vibrant as the music at its center.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Ishmael Reed including rare images of the author.… (mais)

Wanted to like this, but I just couldn't get into it ( )

The best novel about jazz. Reed knows some things.
Reviewed here.

Didn't finish. Wanted to love it, because it's clearly important to a particular moment in literature (which is still thoroughly relevant in 2018) and it's wonderfully, wildly postmodern, but it sacrifices too much in its pursuit of that for me to love it. Would love to revisit once I'm less time-poor, and can maybe enjoy it as part of a group read-a-long or with some recreational drugs. ( )

THE Neo-Hoodoo conspiracy yarn. Imagine if Dan Brown were a poet into jazz music and trance evocation. More necessary than ever.

Wildly rambling and hilarious take on American culture. Reed pits the straight, can't dance world against the hip, love music world, and the latter comes out on top. This is an important work that probably would never be written outside of the 1960s mindset where music is the moving force of the better half of humanity, while the other half tries to keep everyone from moving to the groove. It's an extended meditation on American culture's odd relationship to black music, and the power of that music. ( )

Some 'unknown natural phenomenon' occurs
which cannot be explained,
and a new local demigod is named.

Zora Neale Hurston on the origin of a new loa
The earliest Ragtime songs, like Topsy, "jes grew."
...we appointed about the last one of the "jes grew" songs.
It was a song which had been sung for years
all through the South. The words were unprintable, but
the tune was irresistible, and belonged to nobody.
