Theolonius 'Monk' Ellison is an accomplished but seldom-read author who refuses to write the 'ghetto prose' that would buy him commercial success. After witnessing the runaway success of the latest novel in the genre, We's Lives in Da Ghetto, he hits back with a parody called My Pafology under the pen named Stagg R. Leigh. 'Rewarded' with a six-figure advance and hailed as the authentic new voice of black America, Ellison corners himself into leading an absurd double-life . . .
Percival Everett is the author of fourteen novels, including Glyph, Watershed and Frenzy. Erasure won the inaugural Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for fiction. Everett teaches at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
