About the Book

‘Truly brilliant.’ Los Angeles Review of Books

‘A classic.’ The Times


‘A remarkable novel.’ Wall Street Journal


** With a new foreword by Brandon Taylor, author of Real Life and Filthy Animals **

With your book sales at an all-time low, your family falling apart, and your agent telling you you’re not black enough, what’s an author to do? Thelonius ‘Monk’ Ellison has the answer. Or does he . . . ?

Winner of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Fiction

‘One of the most original and forceful novels to have emerged from America in years.’ TLS

'A furious whirl of a book. It made me howl with laughter . . . and rage, and sorrow, and affinity.' Lisa McInerney

‘Seminal doesn’t even come close. This novel is Everett at his finest, full of trademark protest, humanity and incisive humour, all wrapped up in one hell of a story.’ Courttia Newland


‘Hilarious. . . Everett is a first-rate word wrangler.’ Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

“‘Percival Everett’s satire on race and writing is scathing, funny and cleverly constructed . . . we are very glad to see Erasure back in print.’”
