Fictional Drama – Why Do I Love America?

Why Do I Love America?Why Do I Love America
by Karamba Bayo
Publisher: Outskirts Press
ISBN: 978-1478716297
Published: April 2013
Pages: 196
Genre: Drama/African
Format available for review: Print

A Book in Search of a True Recognition of America’s Generosity Towards Others, and to Say at Last, “Thanks, America.”

Americans’ continual trust in a unique Creator, expressed through the motto “In God We Trust,” could not be changed even by the events of 9/11. I love America and its people for many reasons: for their commitment to making one another happy, their unparalleled generosity toward non-Americans, for being the land of the free and the home of the brave, where dreams come true, and where liberty is in the very air they breathe. America’s greatest triumphs lie in its laws, which guarantee that it will remain the light of democracy throughout the world.

Fiction/Drama – The Persistence of Memory and Other Plays

The Persistence of Memory and Other PlaysThe Persistence of Memory
By Mark David Major
Publisher: Carousel Books
ISBN: 978-1466493681
Published: March 2012
Pages: 214
Genre: Fiction/Drama
Format Available For Review: Print

Always, the past endures…

Twenty years ago, Mark David Major (author of Mars Rising) wrote three plays in a burst of creative activity over a three-year period. The first of these plays, The Persistence of Memory, premiered during a short, successful run at a historic St. Louis area theatre in May 1992. Since then, these plays have been waiting to be revisited by the author and discovered by a new generation of readers and patrons of the theatre.

For the first time, The Persistence of Memory, The Truth of Glances, and Song of My Childhood are presented in print, updated and revised by the author, including production photographs from the 1992 run of The Persistence of Memory at the Historic Miner’s Institute Theatre. The edition also includes prefaces written by the lead actors of the original cast for The Persistence of Memory and a new Introduction by the author reflecting on the creative genesis and literary influences of the plays, challenges and opportunities during the 1992 production, and the rationale for specific revisions and updates to the plays some twenty years later.

These plays embody the didactic nature of Generation X at its best and worst on the themes of romantic love and emotional honesty. It is characterized by a purity of perspective tinted with a cynicism wise beyond its years and a raw emotionalism carefully veiled under a mask of social indifference. In doing so, these plays give voice to an entire generation, the children of a revolution…

Family Saga – The Family That Never Was

The Family That Never Was
Author: Jacque Lynn Singer
Publisher: AuthorHouse
ISBN: 9781452087504 (soft cover)
978-1452087511 (hardback)
Pages: 221
Published: February 2011

This highly emotional novel follows six generations of one family from the eighteen hundreds to the present. The main thrust of the story revolves around Jacob and Esther, their unabashed love for one-another, and their total lack of love, care, and nurturing of four children whom they brought into the world. The novel chronicles life and death, passionate love, rape and incest, childbirth and abortion, open heart surgery and more, including some fun and fascinating experiences; as well as our innumerable attempts to bring our family together. Along with being a novel abounding with emotion and incredulous happenstances, it hopes to disprove a long-standing adage that “people live what they learn”; as the four siblings around whom the novel is built have all risen above The Family That Never Was to being successful, loving and caring individuals with thriving families of their own.
