“I am a fan of reality as opposed to hypocritism”

Recommended Posts

Novels Pillorying Black Church Find Readers in Pews
Books about a morally challenged minister find enthusiastic readers among churchgoers.


From the October 5, 2013, New York edition of the New York Times
By Samuel G Freedman

In reaction to a presentation by author Kimberla Lawson Roby on during the Decatur Book Festival:


“I am a fan of reality as opposed to hypocritism, if that’s the word,” he said. “The books, though they’re fiction, have a lot of truth in them. It does somewhat cast a negative light, and you worry that people will read the books and associate them with every minister. But it’s things that happen in the ministry and are swept under the carpet or handled within the four walls of the church. This brings it to the forefront.”
--Rev. Brian Bullard of Community Fellowship Baptist Church in Covington, Ga.


It clear even without Harry Brown's posts that Kimberla has enough material for a life time of novel
