Publisher's Summary

The Terrible Twos is a wickedly funny, sharp-edged fictional assault on all those sulky, spoiled naysayers needing instant gratification - Americans. Ishmael Reed's sixth novel depicts a zany, bizarre, and all-too-believable future where mankind's fate depends upon a jolly old gent named St. Nicholas and a Risto-rasta dwarf named Black Peter, who together wreak mischievous havoc on Wall Street and in the Oval Office. This offbeat, on-target social critique makes marvelous fun of everything that is American, from commercialism to Congress, Santa Claus to religious cults.

What the Critics Say

"In its (many) finer moments, this is matchless comic invective. Ishmael Reed is a one-of-a-kind writer." (Bruce Allen, Saturday Review)

"Reed has been revising the authorized edition of American history in all his novels, to give the ghosts a chance to talk, and in The Terrible Twos he achieves a kind of jive transcendence...." (John Leonard, New York Times)

    "Another Crazy Reed Story"

    Reed is intelligent and inventive, but often overly creative and at times lacking a strong plot the reader can understand and follow.
