The Art of Percival Everett - Rewriting a Black American Narrative
CRAS 43.2 Summer 2013

Percival Everett's work is important, brilliant, innovative, sometimes difficult, always different, and often ignored. He forces his reader to confront the inadequacy of the conventional label, "African American novelist," sometimes by not talking about race in his fiction at all. Fortunately, the lack of critical attention to his work is changing, if slowly, and this collection of essays intends to contribute to that change. The ten essays collected here attempt to take up some of the innumerable challenges presented by Everett's considerable body of work. The critics themselves demonstrate the breadth of interest this literary artist evokes, representing three nations and many more critical and theoretical approaches. While not an introduction to Everett's work, these essays will help those who don't know about his work to recognize how much of an oversight that really is. Editor: Anthony Stewart
