A wise person once said on the internetsAdmittedly I am a fan of this type of garbage Some might think you re a Black woman why would you read books like this Well I adore horror novels too but I don t condone the slaughter of teenagers with chainsawsBecause of the sticky issue of race and a generation of the PC Thought Police there s a little voice in the back of my mind that wants to have a valid and socially approved reason for loving this genre so much There s no straw to grasp on the grounds of literary merit because there isn t a scrap of merit in it It s trash pure trash of the solidest gold Stereotypes of blacks and whites alike abound every plot twist and turn is motivated by either sex or violence and the prose is either subpar or hangs slightly above average for the wink of an eye But I eat this garbage up with a spoonSo thank you anonymous person on the internets for saying it straight out and making me wave that Falconhurst banner with a lighter heart Does it mean that I long for the days of the Old South and slavery Oh please What s wrong with loving literary trash NothingAnd this book is pure trash although it takes a while to get to the gloriously skeevy stuff that was first glimpsed and then only done half baked in Mandingo It s divided into 3 parts each one about a tumultuous time span in the lives of 3 male slaves all related by bloodBook 1 TambouraTamboura s the brother of a tribal chief but due to some jealous conniving he finds himself aboard a slaver ship bound for Cuba Once there he gets involved with his master s white mistress and things don t end wellBook 2 DrumDrum son of Tamboura and the white woman lives in his mother s whorehouse but thinks he s the son of her maid An argument with a client s coachman proves that Drum s an able fighter and he becomes a main attraction at the brothel bare knuckle brawling with any slave put up against him and putting on public displays of his prowess with the uadroon whores for the amusement of the white dudes who come to drink leer and drool But these salad days don t last foreverBook 3 DrumsonThe imaginatively named son of Drum is purchased by Hammond Maxwell here s where the Mandingo connection comes in and he becomes a valued slave in the Maxwell household However Maxwell s horny daughter Sophie causes no end of trouble for any man within groping range Maxwell s own vendetta against two other slaves a grudge carried over from the last book helps ignite a slave rebellion that has a bunch of carcasses littered among the burnt out ruins at FalconhurstSo nothing redeeming in it whatsoever but so hugely entertaining and absurdly addictive that the slow parts didn t seem that slow and when the action ramped up the pages flew by The first 80 pages were very similar to what Alex Haley did in Roots 14 years later with depictions of village life and Tamboura s capture and journey on the Middle Passage If anything could be called serious and well done it is that first sectionThen the horny white woman shows up and we re offSex Violence Death Violence More sex Lots sex Lots and lots of casual homoerotica More violence Decapitations and handjobs and bears oh myTo this day I still don t know why I liked Mandingo so much Compared to this book it s deathly dull with its repetitious dialogue and non existant plot Maybe if I tried to read it again I wouldn t get through it Thanks to a 1975 article I found in The Washington Post I feel pretty confident in asserting that Lance Horner is probably the one to credit for giving the Falconhurst books some focus and pizazz That elderly gay Bostonian eccentric who allegedly mailed gay porno postcards to misogynist bachelor Kyle Onstott took the reins of long distance collaboration they never met and set the Mandingo saga on the trashy rails where it belongs I salute you sirGone are the pages upon pages of musings about rheumatiz and hot toddies and the ins and outs of slave breeding saying the same damn thing over and over and instead are vivid descriptions of a New Orleans bawdyhouse s attractions a yellow fever epidemic handjobbing mulattos horny masters and mistresses and slaves and brawling fights where nuts get grabbed and ears get chewed and wrists nearly get snapped off There s enough there that is pure Mandingo Onstott but the zip and zing in this one can only be due to Horner and his rather uirky grasp of Southern gothic horror porno exploito trash There s far sex in this than in Mandingo which was so fade to black that I never knew if anything was happening Here there s no doubt though still phrased coyly with terms like warmth and raging need and orgiastic ecstasy But there s never any doubt what s going on and it happens often In fact sex is a motivator for nearly every character at one time or another to do really really stupid things It s often thrown in simply for prurient reasons And I wouldn t have it any other way in lit ra cha like thisAnd the gay element really stands tall and proud in this one Thank you Lance And this book was a featured selection in the Reading Club For Men in 1962 Wonder what some readers thought when they kept coming across those parts in between all the het stuff Especially Drumson s Damn it s a guy with a hand on my dick But I m excited HeeDuh these books aren t for everyone And I don t recommend them unless you know exactly what you re getting and are a OK with just about any kind of WTFery that can get thrown at you But for lovers of pulpy trash they re a must readOh and I should add that if you ve seen the movie as I have done oh so gleefully the screenplay is a total mashup of the three stories There are elements from each one that got smushed so the script would have one main protagonistWhich is better book or movie Ehh I would say 6 of one half dozen of the other They re both cheesy and campy trash although the movie does have the benefit of John Colicos you Trek fans know who he is playing a campy evil gay Creole and the awesome Warren Oates chewing up the scenery as a very crude Hammond Maxwell Oh and Pam Grier talking about her missus s titties The lead Ken Norton has barely thespian skill than a rock How can you go wrong I ask you It s cinematic gold for schlock film fansRead the book then watch the movie Or do the reverse They re both gloriously bad in the best possible way
