He is also a publisher, television producer, songwriter, radio and television commentator, lecturer, and has long been devoted to exploring an alternative black aesthetic: the trickster tradition, or Neo-Hoodooism.

He has received the MacArthur Fellowship, the Los Angeles Times Robert Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Award. Reed has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and is the only person to be nominated for the National Book Award in two categories in the same year.
Reviews
James Baldwin A great writer.
The New York Times Part vision, part satire, part farce...A wholly original, unholy cross between the craft of fiction and witchcraft.
Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Author of Colored people From its title on, Mumbo Jumbo serves as a critique of black and Western literary forms and conventions, and of the complex relationships between the two.
The Boston Globe Brilliant, phantasmal, eccentric...A visionary comic myth.
The Saturday Review A "HooDoo" thriller, an all-out assault on Western civilization...Reed's best novel.
