Oreo (Fran Ross)

“A word about weather: There is no weather per se in this book. Passing reference is made to weather in a few instances. Assume whatever season you like throughout. Summer makes the most sense in a book of this length. That way, pages do not have to be used up describing people taking off and putting on overcoats.”

U.S.A. / 1974

This is a little-known satirical novel about of a biracial black/white girl who travels to NYC to search for her Jewish dad. Apparently it's really funny. Fran Ross only published one book in her career, but she once wrote for the comedian, Richard Pryor.
