She sets the rhythm. She sets the pace. You're invited to come along, if you must. While the invitation may appear casual, even aloof, the writing is not. And once you step inside her latest book, Mosquito, Jones will keep you dazzled by her language, humor, breadth of knowledge, and sheer creative intellect. For its volume alone you may want to put the book down, but as Nadine, Jones's main character might say, "Now, you didn't have to come in the first, but you here now and I gots somethin' to say." You will listen, and you will enjoy. Meet Sojourner Nadine Jane Johnson (also known as Mosquito), female trucker, official mama of the Perfectability Baptist church, Ray's woman (as in the Reverend Ray, although he is not a Perfectability Baptist), and runner for the Sanctuary movement, a new Underground Railroad, which offers asylum to those crossing the Texas border. Mosquito works the southwest Texas route, delivering industrial detergents to Tex-Mex border companies. She's a female John Henry who is tough, walks the straight and narrow, and works alone. When she discovers a pregnant stowaway in her truck, she begins a journey that ends in her heart. But be warned: Mosquito is no quick-read, herky-jerky tear-maker. You will be challenged, frustrated, satisfied, and entertained. But, oh, the language! Here Mosquito sits in a tub, in conversation with Ray: "It must be Sterne's book, 'The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Gent.' " "Yeah, that's the name of that book. 'Cept it's got a gent on it." "What?" "It say, "The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Gent.' Gentleman, you know. That would be my book, The Life and Opinions of Tristam Shandy, Mosquito. 'Cept, I wouldn't be no gent.

Mosquito - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 9780807083475

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Beacon Press], "Bury those easy-to-read Black romance books. Mosquito is where African-American literature is heading as we approach the twenty-first century." -E. Ethelbert Miller, Emerge "If you're acquainted with the lyrical tug of Alice Walker's The Color Purple, then you'll find something familiar and compelling about the narrative voice in Gayl Jones's newest novel, Mosquito. . . . Mosquito's voice is melodic, direct, and so conversational that it hooks us immediately and makes us surrender fully to the narrative. . . . To be sure, these observations crackle with wit and a joyful, almost child-like candor." -Quinn Eli, Philadelphia Inquirer "Gayl Jones is the black writer we all want to be when we grow up . . . Mosquito is Gayl Jones unbound, but certainly not untethered nor without her still prodigious storehouses of language, craft, and storytelling prowess." -Greg Tate, Voice Literary Supplement "Mosquito will amuse and confuse and instruct and pique and exhaust you. Sometimes the anecdotes are so good you call up friends to share them. There are a hundred times you want to shout, 'Right on!'" -Sandra Scofield, Chicago Tribune "Most apparent and most surprising, is Jones's sense of humor. When she's at her best, her sly, subversive wit echoes Ishmael Reed at his most sarcastic." -Jabari Asim, Washington Post Book World "Undoubtedly a literary tour de force." -James A. Miller, Boston Globe Gayl Jones was born in Kentucky in 1949. She attended Connecticut College and Brown University she has taught at Wellesley and the University of Michigan. Her critically acclaimed books include Corregidora, Eva's Man, White Rat, Song for Anninho, Liberating Voices: Oral Tradition in African American Literature, and The Healing, a National Book Award finalist.
