Promotional Information

In her stunning first book, Margo Jefferson gives us the incontrovertible lowdown on call-him-what-you-wish; she offers a powerful reckoning with a quintessential, richly allusive signifier of American society and popular culture.

Reviews

'Jefferson sees nuances that white writers invariably miss ... Nor can you fail to be moved by her descriptions of the ultra-perfectionist environment that Jackson's father created.'
*The Times*

'[Jefferson's] tantalisingly sharp mind [turns] sympathy into insight.'
*Metro*

'A startlingly forthright consideration of what drove Jackson then and what drives our thinking of him now.'
*Esquire*
