    Hardcover ✓ Incognegro Kindle Ø incognegro ebok, Incognegro Kindle A panel from the graphic novel Incognegro written by Mat Johnson and illustrated by Warren Pleece Not long ago I happened to turn on NPR and I caught an interview with the author Mat Johnson talking about his novel Loving Day andother stuff I still haven't been able to read all of it straight through because it's so intense so rich With truth Try it you'll see what I meanOn the basis of hearing the part of it that I heard I thought I'd like to read his graphic novel first How could I not with a name like that It's rare though the one book in the world it seems that hasn't been reprinted on demand 30 or 40 on Hooray for inter library loan It wasn't in my library but they got it for me from the Athens Clarke County library system in the vicinity of UGA I'm so luckyIt is a very graphic graphic novel

    Hardcover ✓ Incognegro Kindle Ø incognegro ebok, Incognegro KindleThe story of a light skinned black reporter who'd head South going undercover to gather names and pictures of those that engaged in lynchings He's ready to hang it up before his luck runs out when he gets news that his brother is in jail for killing a white woman So he heads South one last timeNot only does the book deal with the awfulness that mankind can inflict on one another for something as dumb as the color of one's skin but the book is actually a pretty solid noir Just one set in the deeply racist South of the 1930's
