I’m Out of Touch, I Guess

I get 20-30 emails from book publicists every day. Most are wasted on me for one reason or another. But this one is lost on me, a subtle distinction:

Hi Jonah,

 

From legendary street lit author K’wan, comes the next installment in his #1 Essence bestselling Hood Rat saga, EVICITION NOTICE (Griffin; October 2011; paperback; $14.99; ISBN 0-312-53698-4).

Porsha, Boots, and Frankie live in one apartment and are into all kinds of trouble while having fun. Until one day they find an eviction notice taped to their door. Now they have seventy-two hours to find out how to come up with all the money they owe in months of back rent.

Meanwhile, Don B. is still up to his old tricks with Big Dawg ENT and trying to find an artist to replace Animal and he comes across a rapper from Newark named Lord Scientific who proves to be much more than even Don B. can handle. Meanwhile, the police and Gucci are still searching for Animal and they’ll uncover something about him and his abduction that no one was prepared for.

Students’ Anti-Gun Views

Are children innocents or are they leaders? Are teenagers fully autonomous decision-makers, or are they lumps of mental clay, still being molded by unfolding brain development?
