Few and Chosen

Author:Monte Irvin with Phil Pepe

So much of baseball history is intertwined with the legacy of the Negro Leagues that it's hard to believe how many of these great players remain virtually anonymous to most fans of the game. One of the best players in the leagues' history, Monte Irving, has helped to correct that injustice by identifying the five greatest players at each position as well as paying homage to the great coaches, owners, and teams. Sure, you'll find Jackie Robinson, Satchel Paige, and Josh Gibson in this book--as you well should--but you will also come across some names you've never seen before, and you'll likely be stunned by what these players accomplished in virtual obscurity and under adverse conditions.

Real Men Cook

Author:K. Kofi Moyo

Sixteen years ago on Father's Day in Chicago, K. Kofi Moyo and his wife, Yvette, gathered together a group of men for a food festival. Each man prepared his signature dish. The goal was to raise money for local charitable organizations and shine a light on the "real men" -- the unsung heroes of the black community -- who care for their families throughout the year.

Real Men Cook for Charity is now the largest national Father's Day event in the United States. In cities all across the country, from New York to Los Angeles, from Chicago to New Orleans, several hundred husbands, uncles, brothers, coaches, and teachers have participated in the event and have raised nearly a million dollars for a variety of charities, such as the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the YMCA, and for health initiatives like prostate cancer awareness.

The men are all different, whether they are from Chi-town (up-South from Mississippi and Arkansas), N'awlins, Motown, Dallas, D.C., Miami, Philly, L.A., the Big Apple (with fried fish and biscuits on the side), or Hotlanta. But on Father's Day, they stand together, united by their love of cooking and an unwavering commitment to brotherhood and community.

In Real Men Cook, the men share more than one hundred mouthwatering, finger-lickin'-good recipes -- the kind of recipes that make the Father's Day event a must-attend for all who appreciate a good plate of food. Equally important, they open their hearts, offering memories of growing up, tales of Real Men Cook events, and wisdom for the next generation.

This unique book is a priceless legacy that will nourish your family in spirit and body.

A delicious, heartwarming collection of soul-stirring stories and more than one hundred soul-satisfying recipes from real men who do it in the kitchen!

Every Father's Day for the past sixteen years, men -- from the guy next door to politicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, and artists -- gather together in cities across the country to participate in the Real Men Cook for Charity event. They sacrifice more than a quiet Sunday at home: they spend weeks preparing and all day on their feet dishing out their savory creations for more than thirty-thousand people. The time and effort is rewarded only by the smiles on the faces of the women and children who gather for the celebration every year.

Now one hundred and eight of these remarkable volunteers come forward to express their love of cooking, family, and community, sharing more than one hundred delectable recipes (some handed down over the generations) and the memories that inspire them to live as Real Men.

Here's a sample of the treasures you'll find in Real Men Cook: Captain Kofi's Candlelight Catfish, Darryl's Dynamite Chicken Wings, William Higgonbotham's Red Velvet Cake, Peter Henderson's Buffalo Soldiers' Stampede Stew, The Sawyers' Red Beans and Rice -- Three Ways, Captain Leander Carter's Famous Chesapeake Bay Fish Chowder, Otis Henderson's This Ain't Momma's Tuna Casserole, Derrick Malone's Boozy Black Beans, Dr. Horace C. Broy, Jr.'s Sticky Caramel Pecan Rolls, Jeff Scales's Scrumptious Tropical Rum Coconut Pecan Ice Cream , More than a cookbook, Real Men Cook presents a priceless recipe for living.

My Secrets Your Lies


This bold and daring novel takes you on a fast paced journey into the very separate lives of Sand and Rene, an African American, young, lesbian couple, who have been dating since they were seventeen. Sand, the stud of the two, is on a mission and preoccupied with her own personal and business issues. So much so, that she is too blind to see that her girlfriend is lonely and longing. Rene uses the time to deliberate over her not so accepting lifestyle, while trying to figure out a way to escape it. She then looks for more than what Sand has to offer in the pants of another person. Yes, a man who is ready to ask her for her hand in marriage. Ignorant to the fact that his fiance's not the woman he thinks she is, Vincent settles for the lies and buried secrets she has sheltered in a heart of pain. But all that happens in the dark comes to light in this twisted heated novel that's full of suspense, drama, and luring seduction. As the cards unfold, secrets and lies will be revealed. Tempers are sparked and flames ignited, so if you can't take this heat, then stay out of the kitchen.

Though their first introduction came a bit premature due to a near fatal catastrophe, their next reunion was coerced and proved timely in a sense of friendship and loyalty thanks to Stormy Daniels, an East Memphis baller who generously funded their needs. Ivy's had her share of trouble with the law, and with Candy's bad girl history, neither could afford to bring attention to themselves, especially not at the expense of a criminal-minded, Stormy Daniels. After he insists the girls be down with him and his high-rolling crew, Ivy and Candy become each other's keeper and declare all-out war, trying to get from under Stormy's grasp. Just look up the meaning of fierce in the dictionary, and you'll find a picture of both Ivy Lee Jones and Candy Cane with sinister smiles on their faces. Together they become a force not to be reckoned with. From the Essence? Bestselling Author of Lovin' You Is Wrong and I Don't Wanna Be Right, comes a fast-paced narrative of drama, deceit, and redemption.

Is the Bitch Dead, Or What?

Author:Wendy Williams, Karen Hunter

DJ Ritz Harper used every trick in the book to become a media darling in Drama Is Her Middle Name, shock-jock Wendy Williams's expos of a life she knows better than anyone. Playing a clever trick of her own, Williams left her heroine on the brink of death at the end of the novel. Now the second installment of the chronicles reveals what Williams's readers are dying to know: Is the Bitch Dead, or What?

The drive-by shooting that brought her down forces Ritz to look back on her climb to the top and the people she loved, lost, used, and abused along the way. There's the brief dalliance with Tracee, her best friend, and the romance with a man with some secrets of his own; the loss of her beloved Aunt M; and the recent appearance of the father who abandoned her and is now demanding a financial payoff and fifteen minutes of fame. At the heart of it all is Ritz's need to figure out where the real-life Ritz ends and the radio bitch begins.

Forever a Hustler's Wife

Author:Nikki Turner

Yarni Taylor, a successful lawyer who has dedicated herself to helping "minority men caught up in the wrath," fights to keep her hustler husband out of prison in this anemic tale of treachery and dedication among the rich and ghetto-fabulous. After spending 10 years in prison for a murder he didn't commit, Des Taylor is pardoned, released and makes Yarni a wife and a mother. Des also returns to a life of hustling, and after two years of freedom is framed for another murder. Yarni swears to exonerate the man to whom she has devoted her life. As the couple work to keep Des free, they also contend with a myriad of minidramas?an attempted rape, a kidnapping and the murder of a loved one. Turner (A Hustler's Wife) spares no clich?n this thin story (the bling quotient is staggering), and readers may feel frustrated at the author's constant and simplistic explication of her characters' thoughts and actions. Fans of Turner's earlier works may find something to appreciate, but the uninitiated will have serious trouble.
