Author(s): Adam Smyer


Marcus Hayes is a black law student who struggles, sometimes unsuccessfully, with the impulse to confront everyday bad behaviour with swift and antisocial action. The cause of this impulse is unknown to him. When he unexpectedly becomes involved with the brilliant and kind Amalia Stewart, her love and acceptance pacify his demons. But when his demons return, he is no longer inclined to contain them. Set amid the racial violence of the 1990s, Knucklehead is hard-hitting, hilarious, and frank. The social situations Marcus navigates are as prevalent today as they were twenty years ago.
