This book was written during the Harlem Renaissance in 1931, but the aim of its critique is just as germane today, and echoed in films like Get Out and Sorry to Bother You. Part Afrofuturism, part satire, this novel lampoons both the KKK and the NAACP. It highlights the biological artificiality of race, while also making clear the very real ways it acts as a social force. Mostly, this book is hilarious.
