In post-Reconstruction United States, Black Buck or “Black Bull” was sometimes used as a racial slur.
Black Buck is also a critically acclaimed debut novel by Mateo Askaripour. (2020)
Askaripour was a successful tech-sales guy. By age-24, he was managing a team of 30 people and earning a six-figure salary.
Had problems turning into a full-time author. No agent. No book deal.
He tried and failed for several years.
Finally he wrote this book about a successful BLACK tech-sales guy.
Darren is content working at Starbucks in the lobby of a Midtown office building, hanging out with his girlfriend, Soraya, and eating his mother’s home-cooked meals.
All that changes when a chance encounter with Rhett Daniels, the silver-tongued CEO of Sumwun, NYC’s hottest tech startup, results in an exclusive invitation for Darren to join an elite sales team on the thirty-sixth floor. …Amazon
Today he’s a literary star, already writing the TV screenplay.
I quite enjoyed the first half of the novel, but QUIT at 50%. Got fed up with the story when things started to go wrong.
