"This is the funniest book of 2009.
The more you know about black
history, the funnier it is.
--Dr. James Garrett

Marvin X is one of America's
great story tellers. Maybe second
only to Mark Twain. Of course I'd place
Marvin X ahead of him even.
--Rudolph Lewis, editor,

Hallelujah! MX is reminiscing, I must say, entertainingly,
about his historic dalliance w/shaitan.
--Amiri Baraka, from intro

Thank you Marvin...get it all out, write it out, dance it out,
cry it out, swear it out, walk it out, work it out, thank you
for sharing. --Tarika Lewis, violinist, activist and first Black Panther female
