亚历山大·汉密尔顿和马尔科姆·X被引用说“那些一无所有的人,一无所有的人。” 这几乎描述了芝诺维亚,除了她确实与上帝有关系,而且她自己也知道圣经。因此,当夏洛特(Charlotte)和来自牺牲者弟兄的女儿艾莉莎(Alyssa)敲门声称自己有“good news,”Zenovia为什么不理会她的礼物并决定与母亲一起加入?是因为她的妈妈,还是回到教堂的兴奋?

In search of 好消息, Audrey’对加入新教堂感到很兴奋。芝诺维亚(Zenovia)错过了他们在第一客西马尼教堂(First Gethsemane)的合唱团和布道;然而,他们在牺牲奉献中心的弟兄们那里发现的东西却使奥黛丽在精神上不稳定,而泽诺维亚则无解的问题和破碎的精神。

我喜欢角色演员,他们的故事以及如何赎回他们。我们看到芝诺维亚’s mother Audrey, though straddled with schizophrenia, eager to find a husband and a church. What I absolutely loved about this character was 那 side of her which had me laughing out loud throughout the book. As quick as she would crack a joke, she would cut you smooth if you crossed her.

We met Zenovia 在 age seventeen, mentally older than her years, waiting for 那 next thing, whatever 那 was and looked like. I would assume 那 it’s because she’只要她能记得她就一直在照顾她的妈妈。 Zenovia没有朋友或一个男孩要称呼自己’恩典比苦难长。

蒂芙尼·沃伦(Tiffany Warren)在教堂里谈论宗教言论和问题 that don’与圣经所说的一致。我相信,这是基督徒作者了解教会中所教导和传讲的非圣经教义的最佳时机。  在这一切之中 could help the readers answer or feel empowered enough to challenge their church belief system, ask questions or seek the bible for answers. The title of this book was befitting of the challenges represented. In the midst of all 那’s going on and all 那’有人对你说,要把注意力集中在主上,因为他的爱将永远存在。

与罗兰·S·杰弗森(ROLAND S.JEFFERSON)在一起-《白大衣发烧》的作者

罗兰·杰弗森 -

罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland Jefferson)生于华盛顿特区,在洛杉矶长大。 1976年,他尝试写作小说。他的第一部小说《 103街的学校》(The School On 103rd Street)与著名作家山姆·格林利(Sam Greenlee)和约翰·威廉姆斯(John Williams)的作品并列,获得了圆满成功。它在美国已被发行了三个不同的时期,同时在德国也被发行了,同时获得了无数的奖项和荣誉,包括被《洛杉矶时报书评》评选为“ 2001年洛杉矶文学指南”。





城市评论: 告诉我们的读者白热病。
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  Well, 白大褂发烧 is a romantic melodrama 那 takes place in the 1960's on a HBCU campus during the explosive civil rights era. It centers on distorted values during a time in African American society when college-age girls were socially mandated by their families to maintain their middle-class status by marrying doctors...by any means necessary----even if it meant they didn't love them. It follows three childhood friends as they matriculate through college &医学院,他们的爱 & disappointments all shaped by the unfolding civil rights movement 那 draws them into an irrversible conflict with class, color and ideals of romantic entitlement 那 changes them in profound ways they never anticipated.

城市评论:  这本书的想法是怎么产生的?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  I'd always had the idea for this story largely because I lived it. For the past 40 or so years my family has constantly been on my back to write it, so I finally did. I guess they saw a social and relevance 那 I didn't, probably because I was too close to it. But once I started writing it, I could finally see they maybe had a point, 那 this story was rooted in traditional African American middle-class history (be 那 good or bad).

103街学校:小说(旧书)损坏的商品:小说Urban评论:您还有其他一些发行的标题。简要介绍一下您的其他出版作品。
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  我总共写了六本小说,其中有五本在印刷中。首先, 学校在103RD街 continues be the most successful, in 那 it is being taught in black literature courses on the college level. It's revolutionary theme still resonates some 35 years later. But it too was rooted in the civil rights movement. 球员卡 是关于一群富有的赌博成瘾者进行的独特的拉斯维加斯赌场抢劫案。我的第三本书 559去达马斯科斯 集中于一群手握核弹的伊斯兰恐怖分子。 损坏的货物 是一本关于黑色犯罪的小说,讲述了一群非裔美国人的犯罪分子,他们根据腐败的监狱看守的要求拉了一个大胆的抢劫犯,承诺减少刑期。 一夜站 is a story about a brilliant young female 在 torney who works for the PD's office (public defender). But she has personal demons 那 place her in harms way when she's assigned to defend a black gangbanger/drug dealer falsely accused of murder by a group of corrupt LAPD cops.

城市评论: What things about the book industry have taken you by surprise?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  城市文学的爆炸式增长(路灯)

城市评论: What has been your best experience so far as a published author?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  得到黑人女性读者的积极反馈。

城市评论: Who or what inspired you to want to become a writer?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  No one in particular. As a youngster I always had a penchant for adventure stories and wanted to write. But the family discouraged 那 career choice, thinking it would not be a profession 那 could sustain itself. At 那 time, in the 1950's there weren't but a few black writers who'd broken through to celebrity stastus. So to some degree I suppose they were right, because they only wanted the best for me. So in later years I had to discover my writing talent on my own.

白大衣热:小说城市评论: Do you have any ideas or plans for any upcoming projects?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  是的,我现在正在写一本连环杀手书。许多读者建议续作 白大衣发烧。所以也许,如果我能感觉到。

城市评论: What do you like to do besides write?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  我喜欢开快车。我喜欢在加勒比海度假和写作,尤其是在巴哈马和牙买加。我是经典黑色电影和爵士乐的粉丝。我也是Dorothy Dandridge纪念品的长期收藏者。

城市评论: What things can you suggest to other writers 那 are thinking about self-publishing their 小说?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  写小说很容易。享受其中的一部分。因为一旦完成并编辑,工作就真正开始了。您将面临的最大障碍是,要使该书进行宣传,分发和进入书店以及对其进行审核,需要花费大量时间和金钱。通常,美国大部分主要报纸和杂志都断然拒绝审查自己出版的书籍。您可以通过公共访问节目获得一些电视曝光,但您确实想成为CNN和CNBC的一员。而且,连锁书店必须被踢到桌子上大喊大叫,以使他们放弃自己出版书架的空间。当然,互联网正在改变所有这一切,但是仍然存在大量的营销和促销费用,以使一本书进入公众视野。请记住,您每年要面对其他200,000本书,因此您需要剪裁自己的作品,以在人群中脱颖而出。 E. Lynn Harris,Relentless Arron和Nikki Turner都是自我出版的作家,他们运用有创造力和不懈的努力取得了回报,并取得了重大的书籍交易和(或)自己的书籍烙印。

城市评论: 您还有其他想分享的关于自己或小说的信息吗?
罗兰·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson):  Just 那 it's a book with lots of romance, some explosive historical facts 那 will make some readers squeamish, and a theme guaranteed to make some black women uncomfortable. It wasn't written with 那 in mind of course. But then I was there...

九月·约翰逊(June Johnson)在1960年代的洛杉矶的一个非裔美国人贵族社会中长大。在她的世界里 九月份注定要嫁给她的处女秀伴游Bennyboy,她在威斯康星州完成了护理学校,并在华盛顿霍华德完成了医学院。生病的白大褂发烧,改变生活了吗?

Jefferson writes a compelling cinematic family saga. However, it was challenging in spots, particularly on the part of Aiyana. Although her purpose was obsviously to be the catalyst 那 draws September and Bennyboy apart, she becomes this gender stereotypical witch/puppet master who makes them do what she wants them to do until some miracle revelation by the hero forces him to change his mind about her. The story would have had more depth if the 小说 explored September and Bennyboy's own personal challenges and self-discoveries 那 drew them apart instead of focusing more on the gold-digger than the two main characters we want to root for.

而且,这本书的写作方式使得对Bennyboy和September的关心变得十分困难。九月份的动机是什么?她发生了什么冲突?她对她有什么普遍的吸引力?尽管她的身体描述得非常好,但她的心在哪里?我真的很想关心她发生了什么事,但是我没有。这个故事的写法就像她在玻璃盒子里一样,对于读者来说,我们需要体验和感受9月。

总体, 白大褂发烧 罗兰·S·杰斐逊(Roland S. Jefferson)的小说很有可能成为可爱的爱情小说,但正如我之前所说,角色的故事情节有一些不足。我相信这个故事对于喜欢Norma Jarrett's 甜木兰,德拉·杰克逊(Dedra Jackson) 桑德琳明天的来信 和沃尔特·莫斯利(Walter Mosley)的 那个男人 My Basement.

新评论:理查德·简妮-卧室强盗

5本书中有4本书 -



What do you do when you are sexually frustrated, neglected, lied and cheated on? This describes the ladies of Bingham Lane, deprived from 在 tention they desire and need. These wealthy women derive a plan 那 is too hard to pass up for the "Bedroom Bandit."

David a.k.a. Junior knew early on 那 he was different from most young men his age. With grooming from his uncle, Junior learned the ins and outs of a woman. Junior excelled in academics and received a full academic scholarship to Brown University. But 那's just one of the images 那 Junior's possesses. Junior’他的性欲独特,他从最好的中学到了...一个年长的女人...也是他的邻居。
When a situation goes wrong, Junior has to leave school and must re-evaluate his life options. Will Junior succumb to his sexual desires and embark in a profession as "卧室强盗" 那 is both satisfying and well paying 在 the same time?

卧室强盗 takes you to a place where you definitely want to go. Junior had the world in his hands, in every since of the word. Junior has a lot or pressure to be the best. But he eventually realizes 那 he has to live for himself and stop trying to make everyone happy.  I think Junior understood this, and realized 那 life is not promised to anyone. But just like the old saying goes, "everything 那 glitters isn’t gold." Junior soon learns that every choice has a consequence and repercussion. Will Junior be able to handle everything 那 comes his way?

卧室强盗 理查德·让蒂(Richard Jeanty)的作品将我放在座位边缘这部小说绝对证明了 the point that everything 那 is good to you isn’不一定对你有好处。 Jeanty先生为读者提供 多汁的故事情节,充满事务,金钱,奢侈的品味和谋杀。我非常喜欢阅读其中的每一页 卧室强盗 从头到尾。

Being a teenager is hard for any adolescent, but living in the projects with little or no supervision is a totally different situation. Kamikaze and Killa were cousins who grew up together and had 那 hustler mentality. They did what they needed to do for clothes, shoes, jewelry and food. The cousins were small time dealers who were up on a come up.

在项目中长大并不是在公园散步。为了生存,您必须领先两步,Killa和Kamikaze迅速成长。堂兄们看到了新来的毒贩,决定组建一个名为187 Cru的船员,他们的世界永远都在改变。

The newly founded crew consisted of close friends Paula, Tiffany, and Neecee from the projects. With the "take and conquer" mentality, robbery, murder, dishonesty, and lies are things 那 the crew become accustomed to. Everything around them changes, but are the girls willing and able to hang on for the ride?

名利双收带来了问题,当情况出现问题时,神风队最终入狱。他们付出了更多的努力去做释放神风队所需的一切,包括无数的非法行动。神风队返回家园时,船员已经与兄弟的敌对船员展开了致命的战争。流血,起诉和大量死亡导致对堂兄选择生活的生活进行了重新评估。机组最终会做出哪些选择,对某些或全部机组来说为时已晚?

第187节 by 米卡尔·H·艾敏 was a very interesting tale. The path 那 the cousins chose to live lead to some very severe consequences and repercussions. Fast money is not always easy and good money. This book is a good book for young men and others who have this skewed image of a hustler's life. Some points within the story were hard to follow, but 第187节 为神风队和奇拉队的生活提供了生动的形象。

一位新的失业广告主管试图通过首先清理街道上的垃圾来改变他在哈林区的位置。由于他的努力,该社区被当地媒体所关注。当他导致他的邻里绅士化时,他所有的努力可能都是徒劳的。现在,这个勇敢的人必须设法挽救他的邻居,使其失去家园,并恢复他在哈林区的身份。

哈林区的最后一块 is an interesting take on the gentrification 那's taking place in so many neighborhoods across the country. 克里斯托弗·赫兹 does a good job of telling this story through the eyes of an unnamed narrator. Herz gives you a bird's-eye view of the sights and sounds of the Harlem neighborhood. You feel the struggle of the main character as he tries to do what he feels he needs to do for Harlem while trying not to abandon his wife. This story does have an extremely perplexing psychological twist 那 you will need to pay close 在 tention to. 哈林区的最后一块 是克里斯托弗·赫兹(Christopher Herz)发人深省的首本小说。

心灵的全蚀 is not your typical erotica 小说 by 赞恩 . This book is truly unlike anything 那 赞恩 has ever written. The storyline was more of an emotional love story with just a little spice thrown in. What was interesting about this book was the overall message of how people should not take their significant others for granted in relationships. The characters were well-developed and relatable. Readers may find themselves wondering what they would do in the situations 那 these characters find themselves in. The only thing 那 would have put this story over the edge would have been the inclusion of more of 赞恩 ’s signature eroticism. Towards the end of the book, there is a shocking twist 那 will make you question what you read in the entire 小说. 心灵的全蚀 是发人深省但有趣的读物。
