Long Division РKiese Laymon (2012)

There’s a lot in this book – inventive / wacky structure, dark humor, a keen eye for the ironies of changing race relations in America over the past fifty years – but for all of the main character’s (City Coldson’s) talk of “good sentences”, with fifty pages left in the book I can’t recall coming across a single one by Laymon I might call beautiful. 2.7 / 5
