He is wholly self-taught in English literature and composition. The obstacles which he has surmounted were undreamed of by Burns and other sons of song who struggled up from poverty, obscurity, and ignorance to glory. Joseph Seamon Cotter was born in Nelson County, Kentucky, in 1861, but has spent practically all his life in Louisville. He had the scantiest opportunity for schooling in childhood, though he could read before he was four years old. He was put to work early, and from his eighth to his twenty-fourth year earned his living by the roughest and hardest labor, first in a brick yard, then in a distillery, and finally as a teamster.< Less
Memoirs of An Extraterrestrial The Negro Conundrum By H. P. Stanly
eBook (ePub): $5.99
Memoirs of An Extraterrestrial: The Negro Conundrum is a riveting collection of fictionalized stories taken from the life and times of a reluctant messiah known as Homam, after he discovers—to... More > his horror—that he has incarnated to Earth in the body of a Negro. Born in December of 1953, to a white mother and Negro father, he was fully conscious of his true nature as something other than what he appeared to be in the flesh. When his family moves to a predominantly white, redneck community, Homam discovers an innate affinity toward white people, contrasted by an inexplicable dislike for Negroes—including his own father. Caught between two worlds, he must discover his purpose and the reason he exists on Earth as a Negro. The quest for answers takes him into the very heart of the Ku Klux Klan, the TV business, and the personification of evil in the form of a man. Memoirs of an Extraterrestrial is a poignant, rollicking tale that speaks to the issue of race, like no other work of fiction has ever dared.< Less

Il caro amico Giovanni Negro, poiché sapeva che in gioventù avevo svolto per un paio di anni il lavoro di correttore di bozze in una piccola casa editrice, mi chiese tempo addietro se...

Second Book of Tales (Illustrated) By Eugene Field
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Of all American poets Field, it seems to me, best understood the heart of a child. Other sweet singers have given us the homely life of the Western cabin, the unexpected tenderness of the... More > mountaineer, the loyalty and quaint devotion of the negro servant, but to Field alone, and in preëminent degree, was given that keen insight into child nature, that compassion for its faults, that sympathy with its sorrows and that delight in its joyous innocence which will endear him to his race as long as our language is read. His poems too always kindle afresh that spark of child-life which still lies smouldering in the hearts of us all, no matter how poor and sorrowful our beginnings. As we read, how the old memories come back to us! Old hopes, rosy with the expectation of the indefinite and unknowable. Old misgivings and fears; old rompings and holidays and precious idle hours. We know them all, and we know how true they are.< Less

More > Bradford. For a while devalued due to its supposedly demeaning and patronising use of 'blackie' speech, it is now recognised as a serious contribution to American literature. As later adapted by Marc Connelly it forms the original text for the successful ( but in some views less robust) play Green Pastures.< Less

A short memoir in three parts. HISTORY is about the author and some characters he has known (a transvestite, an entrepreneur, a rocket scientist, a beatnik, a martial artist, a movie star, and a... More > fool, to name a few). These stories, taking place from 1945 to 1961, are generally true. PRE-HISTORY is about the author’s parents and grandparents. Occurring before 1945, these stories are generally not true, or are at least imagined. It is through these tales that the author tries to figure out what made his folks the way they were (and explain how he got to be such a pidawee). DEATH is about the passing of the author’s mother in 1955 in Shelby, North Carolina (at the Center of the Known Universe - where all explanations come together). Although not explicitly about the South, it is a Southern Book. It's got crazy white people, Magical Negroes, muscadine grapes, livermush, dynamite, undertones of violence, and guns - lots of guns.< Less
