  1. Just finished Glorious by Bernice McFadden, The immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a question of freedom by r. dwayne betts,city kid by nelson george and fela this bitch of life. Will start either wench or victoire or black water rising. Started reading One Drop and Passing Strange last year, but put them down.
  2. has not set their status

  3. John Edgar Wideman is self publishing his latest collection of short stories. http://kalamu.posterous.com/info-john-edgar-wideman-self-publishes-luluco
  4. I too couldn't wait for the publication of Ralph Ellison's final (?) work. Going on a cruise in a week thought I would take in along to get started. Then I saw it at my local independent at 1000+ pages, i think I will be reading this in small doses, when I get back. The weight of the book alone may cause me to pay extra for luggage at airport check in. So I will be reading "A Question of Freedom" by R. Dwayne Betts instead, so I can discuss it with my students at the high school I work at when I get back from vacation.
  5. Love, Anger, Madness - A Haitian Trilogy, By Marie Vieux-Chauvet. This is a new translation with an introduction by Edwidge Danticat. Danticat mentioned it at the Brooklyn Book Fest in Sept. '09. Purchased Victoire today. Awaiting the delivery of Fela- this bitch of life.
