Beschreibung

"Are Indians allowed to write like this?" asked a reader of this satirical examination of race and its worldwide manifestations, The White God delivers "The Fourteen Commandments of Impressing the Whites" to a brown "Moses." and the result is this part no-holds-barred-satirical, part-idealistic analysis of black and white, universal racism and how we might counter and contain it.

Inscribed on two coconuts, the Commandments sum up both the secrets of success for brown/colored writers, entrepreneurs, and artists, and the distortions caused by race politics and realities in the modern world of Obama,  Zulus dressed in three-piece suits, and Bangladeshis in bowler hats.

It is also a compassionate towards nonwhites often forced to strive to be judged and found worthy by the West, while yearning to be authentic. What does this situation mean for authenticity, honesty, integrity, and a mutually respectful and honest communication between West and East?

"The reader laughs, squirms, recognizes his/her own hypocrisy and the blatant absurdity of most unquestioned social conventions. In this, Crasta succeeds [in ways that] Chris Rock race routines succeed, i.e., brilliantly. Zany exuberance . . . mischievous pleasure."--Frank Feldman

"Boldly goes where no Indian writer has gone before."--The Asian Age, Book Pick of the Fortnight.
