“For half a century, Ishmael Reed?s been American literature?s most fearless satirist, waging a cultural forever war against the media that spans a dozen novels, nine plays and essay collections, and hundreds of poems” The New Yorker

“ The Terrible Fours is as funny as Richard Pryor, as sacrilegious as Lenny Bruce and as clever as Mark Twain.” Ron Jacobs Counterpunch

“Mr. Reed is as close as we are likely to get to a Garcia Marquez, elaborating his own mythology even as he trashes ours. ”

“ Ishmael Reed is the Charlie Parker of American fiction. ” Max Roach

“ Reed has an unnerving sense of what will show up on our televisions. He is without a doubt our finest satirist since Twain. ” Book World
