This fictional accounting of the life of black comic extraordinaire Jackie Mann is, in fact, a history of American race relations in the latter half of the twentieth century. The hackneyed rags-to-riches literary genre is revitalized by this compelling story. It becomes a dazzling listen as performed by Dion Graham. He transports us into the life of a consummate entertainer who is seeking the social respect he thinks his professional status deserves in America of the 1950s.
