Emily Raboteau, winner of the Pushcart Prize is the author of The Professor's Daughter, a novel which traces a young woman's search for identity in a biracial family wrought with recent tragedy. In her new book Searching for Zion, Raboteau unites memoir with historical and cultural exploration in searching out black communities that left home in search of a Promised Land. Praised Edwidge Danticat, Searching for Zion is "an exceptionally beautiful and well researched book about a search for the kind of home for which there is no straight route, the kind of home in which the journey itself is as revelatory as the destination." Raboteau's short stories have appeared in Best American Short Stories, Best African American Fiction, and Best American Mystery Stories

Best African American fiction 2009 by Gerald Lyn Early( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This inaugural collection of fiction brings together authors across the rich and varied African diaspora experience. Organized into short stories, novel excerpts, and young adult fiction, the collection offers a range of styles, textures, and settings. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichies story is set in Nigeria, where American gangster-rap culture is permeating and guns and tortured loyalties became common. The U.S. and the Caribbean are the settings for Tiphanie Yaniques story of intergenerational and mixed-race tensions between two families. The collection includes an excerpt from Mat Johnsons historical novel set in eighteenth-century New York and an excerpt from Junot D-azs novelset in a contemporary urban ghetto. Also included are works by young adult authors Jacqueline Woodson and Walter Dean Myers. Not meant to be a definitive quasi-Norton edition, this engaging collection still shows the incredible range of talent and focus of fiction written by African Americans

Un reino de olivos y ceniza : escritores contra la ocupación de Palestina( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Michael Chabon y su esposa, la escritora de origen israelí Ayelet Waldman, han convocado a algunas de las plumas más destacadas del panorama internacional para que nos den su visión sobre un conflicto enquistado: la ocupación israelí de Palestina. Veinticinco escritores de primer nivel aportan en este libro su visión sobre la ocupación israelí de Palestina. Invitados por la ONG Breaking the Silence (Rompiendo el Silencio), sus textos son apuntes del natural cuando se cumplen cincuenta años de la guerra de los Seis Días. Lejos del seguimiento mediático del conflicto, estas historias nacen de encuentros con líderes políticos, intelectuales y activistas, pero también de la convivencia con empresarios, granjeros, abuelos, padres e hijos. Son testimonios como el de Mario Vargas Llosa en tribunales militares, en procesos a menores de edad con los nervios rotos por un programa de intimidación que siembra el pánico para prevenir el hipotético terror. En estas páginas, el lector encontrará también los recuerdos de Colm Tóibín y sus entrevistas con Yasser Arafat, o asistirá a la estupefacción de un Michael Chabon que sigue los pasos de un norteamericano que ha perdido su nacionalidad y vive una existencia kafkiana desde que decidió residir el pueblo de su familia, en Cisjordania"--Amazon.com
