Suder, Percival Everett`s acclaimed first novel, follows the exploits and ordeals of Craig Suder, a struggling black third baseman for the Seattle Mariners. In the midst of a humiliating career slump and difficulties with his demanding wife and troubled son, Suder packs up his saxophone, phonograph, and Charlie Parker`s Ornithology and begins a personal crusade for independence, freedom, and contentment. This ambitious quest takes Suder on a series of madcap adventures involving cocaine smugglers, an elephant named Renoir, and a young runaway, but the journey also forces him to reflect on bygone times. Deftly alternating between the past and the present, Everett tenderly reveals the rural South of Suder`s childhood — the withdrawn father; the unhinged, protective mother; the detached, lustful brother; and the jazz pianist who teaches Suder to take chances. And risk it all he finally does: Suder`s travels culminate in the fulfillment of his most fanciful childhood dream.

A book by Percival Everett

Percival Everett is an American writer and professor emeritus of English at the University of Southern California. Born December 22, 1956. Lives in Los Angeles, California. While at Brown University, he wrote his first novel, Suder (1983), about Craig Schuder. Everett`s second novel, Walk Me to the Distance (1985), became the basis for the ABC TV film Follow Your Heart. The book tells the story of David Larson, who returned from Vietnam. A year later, the novel Cutting Lisa was published. In 1987. Everett has published a collection of short stories The Weather and Women Treat Me Fair. Three years later he publishes two books: Zulus (a mixture of grotesque and post-apocalyptic) and To Her Dark Skin (a kind of retelling of Euripides` play Medea). He then proves himself as a children`s writer, publishing an illustrated book for young readers, The One That Got Away. And again he returns to novels. In 1994, the Western God`s Country was released, performed in a somewhat parody key. In 1996 the novel Watershed and the second collection of short stories Big Picture were published. In the same year, the novel Frenzy is published (editor`s note - in many sources, including Wikipedia, the publication date is 1997, which is incorrect, since the novel was published on December 1, 1996), which brings us back to Greek mythology, but specifically to Dionysus and his assistant Vlepo. In 1999, the novel "Glyph" appeared on the book shelves, which tells the amazing story of baby Ralph, who has an incredible IQ (475). Grand Canyon, Inc. (2001) was Everett`s first story. It follows Rhino Tanner`s attempt to commercialize the Grand Canyon. Everett also published the novel Erasure in 2001. In 2004, the epistolary novel A History of the African-American People (Proposed) by Strom Thurmond, co-written with Jim Kinkade, was published. Also in 2004, the Damned If I Do short story collection and the American Desert novel were released. The novel Wounded, published in 2005, tells the story of John Hunt, a horse trainer who faces hate crimes against homosexuals and Native Americans. The Water Cure is out in 2007. In the book, we learn about Ishmael Kidder, who lost his daughter and went to New Mexico, where, as it seems to Kidder, there is a man in prison whom he believes is the murderer of his daughter. The title of the book is based on one of the methods of torture that Kidder uses on a person, namely drowning. In 2009, Graywolf Press released I Am Not Sidney Poitier. The book raises the racial issues that the protagonist, similar to the actor Sidney Poitiers, will have to face.
