Summary
"Mumbo Jumbo is Ishmael Reed's brilliantly satiric deconstruction of Western civilization, a racy and uproarious commentary on out society." -- back cover
Summary
A strange psychic epidemic called "Jes Grew" is spreading through the country, affecting millions. People start doing stupid sensual things with abandon, and civilization itself is threatened. PaPa LaBas, a HooDoo detective, is trying to find out the origins of the Jes Grew--not because he wants to cure it, but because he's ready for a new kind of society
