Los Angeles Review of Books reviews Ishmael Reed’s latest “Conjugating Hindi”

Ishmael Reed released Conjugating Hindi, a historical satire of Indian race relations in America, through Dalkey Press in the spring of 2018.

“Conjugating Hindi is a further exploration of Reed’s alternative Black aesthetic of Neo-HooDoo, informed by bricolage and jazz improvisation. It is not quite as poetic or gnostic as Reed’s 1972 masterpiece Mumbo Jumbo, but it is brilliant — the same sort of experimental brilliance observable in the fiction of Thomas Pynchon or the cut-up technique of William S. Burroughs — and more accessible.”
