Overview

"Solid satire built on a deliciously farcical plot..." --Kirkus Reviews

You can't save the world. Tell that to Beauregard Peebles, the Princeton-educated white medical student who makes it is his obligation to understand his black, drug-dealing, adolescent friend, Tyranius Roosevelt. By providing the Roosevelts his benevolent intervention - whether they ask for it or not - Beau hopes to stop them from doing the things they do to mess up their lives. It gets worse, as Beau spirals downward, donning blackface and dialect, and makes himself a nuisance with his racial antics, a modern-day Diogenes. Beau, for all his blundering, for all his arrogance, for all his obsessiveness and offensiveness, is honest - and funny.

"Chump is a satirical look at American society, and it leaves no one unscathed. The poor welfare recipients, the liberals, and even the idealistic Chump and his doctor friends are all speared in this book. " --David D

"Reeves forces us to accept that we deny our own thoughts and impulses via our politically correct defense mechanisms and herein lies a festering problem in race and class relations in America..." --AM in Park Slope

"As an RN from LA County Hospital, the story was very believable. For many readers this may be tough to stomach, but I found their relationships very realistic..." --Ann Welton
