About this title


When a "Boss" tries to buy the exclusive rights to Santa Claus--the "Bosses" being already in possession of Government and Religion--St. Nicholas, in league with his medieval partner Black Peter, unleashes a whirlwind of havoc and confusion

From the Back Cover:

"The Terrible Twos is a funny, sharp-edged fictional assault on all those sulky, spoiled naysayers needing instant gratification - Americans. Ishmael Reed's sixth novel depicts a zany, bizarre, and all-too-believable future where mankind's fate depends upon St. Nicholas and a Risto-rasta dwarf named Black Peter, who together wreak mischievous havoc on Wall Street and in the Oval Office. This offbeat, on-target social critique makes fun of everything that is American, from commercialism to Congress, Santa Claus to religious cults."--BOOK JACKET.
