This book was very long, and it took me a very long time to finish. It definitely had interesting parts and ideas, but it was also extremely tedious. The author is most certainly knowledgeable and a gifted writer, but he likes to hear his own voice a bit too much. He could use much more editing. I would have preferred to read a 50-page essay on the topic and would have gotten just as much information. Plus, I could have avoided the word salad that ended up allowing the otherwise interesting thesis to get lost.

The ideas of how race, racism, and other cultural themes intertwine with hoaxes, liars, plagiarism, forgery, and more is provocative. He dives deeply into many instances historically and how culture has played a role in who, when, how, and why people choose to hoax or fake or bend the truth. The problem I experienced was that he dove so deeply and neglected to give the reader an oxygen tank. I was left drowning in all of the text. While he did make me chuckle at his word play occasionally, it mainly felt like he was writing for himself rather than trying to reach out and take the journey together.

Across a turbulent history, from such vital centers as Harlem, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, Black poets created a rich and multifaceted tradition that has been both a reckoning with American realities and an imaginative response to them. Capturing the power and beauty of this diverse tradition in a single indispensable volume, African American Poetry reveals as never before its centrality and its challenge to American poetry and culture. - from the publisher

An interesting book that I'm not sure earned its full page count (500+ in the print edition, I read an ebook from the library). The overall thesis is that hoaxes and fake news are built on an otherized foundation, usually racial but sometimes religious or other minority culture. The idea is that we're more willing to be fooled by "weird stuff" from cultures we consider "weird" to begin with—a fine assertion, and one I think is probably even true—but I was expecting this book more to be about the people who perpetrate hoaxes, not the, idk, sociology of hoaxes.… (mer)
