Love for Sale and Other Essays
My new book, Love for Sale and Other Essays, has won the Autumn House Press nonfiction prize and is now available online! Click HERE to purchase your copy on amazon.com.
Love for Sale includes personal essays as well as musings on race and the general problem of being human. Best of all, it revels in the connections I find among the art forms I love: books, jazz, film, and painting. Explore them with me! (I did the cover art, too. Heh.)
My recommendation for reading this book: pour your favorite drink (I suggest straight bourbon); put some good, old jazz on your stereo or iPod; and lose yourself in ideas linking Zadie Smith to Clint Eastwood, Coleman Hawkins to Thomas Hardy, Charles Mingus to Robert Altman . . .
