Language: English. Weight: 6.5 ounces. First Perennial Classics Edition (1998); Eighth Printing thus. Trade Paperback. At the height of the Harlem Renaissance during the 1930s, Zora Neale Hurston was the preeminent black woman writer in the United States. She was a sometime-collaborator with Langston Hughes and a fierce rival of Richard Wright. Her stories appeared in major magazines, she consulted on Hollywood screenplays, and she penned four novels, an autobiography, countless essays, and two books on black mythology. Yet by the late 1950s, Hurston was living in obscurity, working as a maid in a Florida hotel. She died in 1960 in a Welfare home, was buried in an unmarked grave, and quickly faded from literary consciousness until 1975 when Alice Walker almost single-handedly revived interest in her work. Of Hurston's fiction, Their Eyes Were Watching God is arguably the best-known and perhaps the most controversial.

(8.25 x 5.35 x 0.75 inches). 240 pages. Language: English. Weight: 7.7 ounces. Trade Paperback. Ms. Adams is indeed a modern-day Jane Austen. She chronicles the lives, loves, and angst of the "upper crust." Her satire on the medical establishement in Medicine Men is priceless -- Raleigh Sanderson is the ultimate brilliant, egomaniacal, and totally self-absorbed surgeon. Molly and Felicia are bright, funny, talented women who are just ditzy and vulnerable enough to be totally engaging. Medicine Men is hardly a chronicle of modern cancer treatment. And if all your encounters with doctors have been sublime and reverential, you won't get it. But if you've ever dated, married, had an affair with, or been the patient of a less than perfect physician, you will find enough truth in the likes of Raleigh, Dave, and Mark to be delightfully amused and entertained.

Cushioned from political reality by the security of Johannesburg's white middle-class social round, she is at first untouched by the sense of mounting tension amongst old friends assisting what remains of the black resistance. This is the period of the Ninety Day law and such activity can be dangerous. When, at the urging of a radical defence lawyer, Matthew Marais, Anne travels to the Eastern Cape to report on political trials in isolated villages, she questions:"to witness and not to protest - was this not to participate?". Compelled by love for Matthew and by a growing sense of commitment, she discovers the meaning of repression and of betrayal in political and human terms.
