About this title


Tony Pellar, a man living on the verge of madness in the subway tunnels of New York City, recalls his life during the 1960s Civil Rights movement in North Carolina in an effort to recreate his painful past.

From the Inside Flap:

"ORANGE LAUGHTER descends from Dostoevsky's NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND by way of Ralph Ellison's INVISIBLE MAN, William Faulkner, and recent popular American music. . . . Ross has a powerful style, a taste for complex organization, and a strong imagination. ORANGE LAUGHTER is a brilliant novel."--Bruce King, World Literature Today

"Chillingly real--raw, naked in its desperation, darting to the edge of sanity and back. Ross has created a powerful story and unforgettable characters."--Grace Fill, Booklist, starred review

"Here is a novel which eloquently addresses our collective quest for a sane center where self and other may endure and thrive. Indeed, this is a story of private correspondences from the glowing regions of heaven and hell, a near-mythic tale which illuminates our dual impulses for connection and isolation, creation and destruction, salvation and damnation."--Jeffrey Renard Allen, author of RAILS UNDER MY BACK

"Ross . . . combines a postmodern stream-of-consciousness narrative of madness with a devastating tale of real-life racial evil. . . . The finely controlled pacing yields an emotional clout as chilling as the times it evokes. Literate and accomplished."--Publishers Weekly
