THE HIGH PRICE OF A GOOD MAN

Author:Debra Phillips

The perfect man is what Queenie seeks, and when she finds and pays for the man of her dreams at a charity fundraiser, Queenie is determined to get more than her money's worth by making Zeke Washington hers and hers alone - no matter what. Of course, Mr. Zeke Washington has a few sly motives and not-so-cute goals of his own.
Meet Miss Poetta James, Queenie's best of best friend, the friend that contentment could very well be her middle name because as far as Poetta is concerned, nothing brews contentment more than the knowledge that the way to a man's heart is through a well-placed "hex". Do a chant, burn a few candles and watch 'em fall, but oops...even a hex meant to be good has a way of turning out so very, very bad.
Peek into the lives of two sistah friends and their comical pursuit of true love and see what lessons they learn, that rarely is true love something we can seek and find, but ultimately, it can happen by and find us.

The Matter is Life
THE MATTER IS LIFE

Author:J. California Cooper

The first of eight stories in this collection focuses on a funeral but affirms life. Almost every speech uttered by the 90-year-old narrator contains the words, "I ain't ready." Luxuriating in the love of her extensive family, she tells God and all the world that she is not ready to die. Later stories deal with poverty, abusive husbands, drug addiction, and prostitution, but even these grim situations yield nurturing down-home wisdom. Most of Cooper's first-person narrators are shrewd black women, and on occasion the stories suffer from sameness in plots, themes, and characters. Usually, however, they are touching without falling into sentimentality and totally honest without becoming crude.
