You Know Better by Tina McElroy Ansa

Though definitely Southern in tone, 'You Know Better' delves into core problems currently plaguing the African-American community across the country. Never mind that Mulberry is a small-town; the issues addressed are rampant from New York to Chicago to Los Angeles.


Spy’s Fate by Arnaldo Correa

Correa's 'Spy's Fate' is a must for any spy novel enthusiast. Beyond this, the book is an important political statement, and being written in a Cuban voice, it is an amazing one.


Movie Love in the Fifties by James Harvey

Harvey wishes to illustrate how by appealing to and then upsetting the kinds of emotional allegiance audiences give to established cinematic conventions, a more complex and compelling kind of affection emerges, one drawn by oddity and extremity and not the tried and true.


Lucky Man: A Memoir by Michael J. Fox

Fox's book is not just another Hollywood cry for attention hidden in the form of an autobiography. Though he may be known primarily for his work as actor, movies and movie making are not why Fox put pen to paper.


Boulevard by Jim Grimsley

The book transcends the basic coming-out narrative by entering into a near fantasy world in which Newell never has to confront society.
