With a sardonic smile and a bayoux accent, JD Jackson navigates this satiric deconstruction of Western civilization by one of the world's best novelists. "Jes Grew" is spreading the country, affecting millions as historic and fictional characters search for a cure. What is this strange affliction, and can PaPa LaBas, a HooDoo detective, find its origin in time to aid its evolution into the creation of a new society? Jackson keeps the knife-edge in his voice as his baritone, at the same time, rounds the edges of Reed's prose. This masterpiece may have some readers scratching their heads, but those who are up for a wild ride should it check out. R.O. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
