Sista Souljah- When I was freshman in college, Sista Souljah came as a speaker. She not only spoke about her book "The Coldest Winter Ever" but she spoke directly to every Black Woman in that room. Afterwards she took time to sign books and leave personal messages in each one. I remember she looked directly into my eyes before she wrote her message and she told me not to read it until I got home. She changed my life that night and I thank her.

Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (1871-1945) was an American novelist and journalist of the naturalist school. His novels often featured main characters who succeeded at their objectives despite a lack of a firm moral code, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and philosophy.

Author Tea Obreht
I found this book pleasant enough, but somehow unsatisfying. I think this reviewer, who calls the book a YA book, may be onto something. Its positive review in the NYTimes was written by the author of The Book Thief, and Colum McCann, whose writing I find to be organic cotton candy, gives a blurb on the front cover. It's an attack of the pretty, empty, new semi-magic realists!
