By Ishmael Reed,Peter Torberg

Ishmael Reed hat sich für seine bissige Gesellschaftssatire einen der verlogensten Höhepunkte kommerzialisierten Lebens herausgesucht: das Geschäft mit dem Weihnachtsmann.
Der unerträgliche Gegensatz zwischen Arm und Reich in den nordamerikanischen Großstädten, die unbekümmerte Mentalität der Amerikaner, die von den Medien beherrschte Kultur auf Disneyland-Niveau, die militante Frauenbewegung – alles das überzeichnet Reed so böse und grell, daß die Absurdität der Phänomene anschaulich wird.
