-- Reed's hoodoo Western weaves together different folklores and collapses time to present his satiric take on the myths of the Old West, the power of media, and the Christian Church.
-- The story of the Loop Garoo Kid, a black satanic cowboy who comes to liberate the town of Yellow Back Radio from the clutches of cattleman Drag Gibson and the bunch of "old folks".
-- First published by Doubleday ('69), most recent paperback by Bantam ('72).
From the Publisher:

And so begins the HooDoo Western by Ishmael Reed, author of Mumbo Jumbo and one of America's most innovative and celebrated writers. Reed demolishes white American history and folklore as well as Christian myth in this masterful satire of contemporary American life.

In addition to the black, satanic Loop Garoo Kid, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down features Drag Gibson (a rich, slovenly cattleman), Mustache Sal (his nymphomaniac mail-order bride), Thomas Jefferson and many others in a hilarious parody of the old Western.
