Soul City

Soul City by Toure is a magical and ultra funky novel about a city run by DJs (as mayors), where souped-up cars are dedicated to musical legends (eg, The JamesBrownmobile, The Billiemobile, The Wu-Tangmobile etc), groovers drop bliss (a drug that enhances your hearing), fly, buy mind-altering shampoo from the Devil, and well, I loved it because there are so many over-the-top cartoony elements! This could be a cool story, animated.

A really fun read and some might also say – a tongue-in-cheek tribute to African-Americana.
