Book Overview
Taking its title from Danger Mouse's pioneering mashup of Jay-Z's The Black Album and the Beatles' The White Album, Young's encyclopedic book combines essay, cultural criticism, and lyrical choruses to illustrate the African-American tradition of lying--storytelling, telling tales, fibbing, improvising, jazzing.
