Guest Whit Frazier Posted November 17, 2016 Report Share Posted November 17, 2016 Hi all, I'd like to submit a self-published book for review by AALBC. The novel is about a large cast of characters in New York and New Jersey during the 2008 election cycle, and their experiences with one another during this heady time in our history, as well as their relationship to the folk art of African countries and cultures as well as the folk art of African American culture, symbolized by the presence of Robert Johnson, the iconic delta blues musician. The novel is called Robert Johnson's Freewheeling Jazz Funeral, and is self-published as both a paperback and an ebook. I am originally from the Washington, DC and New York areas, and have previously written a novel on Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston. I'm currently living in Stuttgart, Germany with my wife and my two beautiful daughters. I'm also studying for my M.A. at the University of Stuttgart for literary theory, and hoping to write a thesis on common tropes in African-American literature. The details of the book are as follows: Author: Whit Frazier Title: Robert Johnson's Freewheeling Jazz Funeral ISBN-13: 978-1539967767 Publication Date: November 15, 2016 Cover and synopsis: The lives of a black power playwright, a white womanist, a newly-sighted scientist, a mysterious poetess, a Palestinian spiritualist, a soon to be famous ingenue actress, a suburban-bred weed dealer and Robert Johnson himself, the iconic great delta blues guitarist, all converge during the charged atmosphere of the 2008 election cycle in this bizarre, entertaining and challenging anti-novel about the way the future reaches back into the past and changes the way we experience the present.
