How to Make Love to a Negro without Getting Tired

September 2010

“This is the 25th anniversary of the publication of this slim first novel, now a classic of Canadian immigrant literature, by Laferrière. The Haitian-Canadian writer has published 14 novels and won many awards, including a Governor-General’s award and the Prix Médicis. The book follows the adventures, sexual and otherwise, of a young Haitian man in Montreal, who is writing for his life.”
