Song for my fathers : a New Orleans story in black and white by Thomas Sancton( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nurtured on his father's belief in racial equality, the aspiring clarinetist embraced the old musicians with a boundless love and admiration. In a sense, they became his spiritual fathers and role models. Meanwhile his real father, who had first led the boy to the "mens" and shared his reverence for them, later recoiled in horror at the idea that his son might lose his way in the world of late-night jazz joints, French Quarter bar rooms, and a precarious life on the margins of society. The tension between the father's determination to control the boy's destiny and his son's abiding passion for the music is a major theme of the book. The narrative unfolds against the vivid backdrop of New Orleans in the 1950s and '60s. But that magical town is more than decor; it is perhaps the central player, for this story could not have taken place in any other city in the world. Written several years before Katrina crashed into New Orleans and changed its face forever, Song for My Fathers seems all the more moving in the wake of that cataclysm
The armageddon project by Thomas Sancton( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A bombing in a Paris church lands American journalist Sam Preston in the story of a lifetime - if only he can survive. The attack leads Sam to a group of Assyrian Christians. Their colorful leader-in-exile, Rafat Ganjibar, aims to form a breakaway Assyrian Republic in the oil-rich lands of northwestern Iraq with the help of some powerful supporters - the American Evangelical community, the Israelis, and even U.S. President Jack Ritter. Sam suspects the President and his allies are acting secretly - and illegally - to advance and fund this movement." "Invited to the White House to report on a performance by Princess Tawana, a charismatic Gospel singer enrolled by the Christian Fundamentalists to champion their cause, Sam meets a born-again U.S. Army General. As the shocking details of the "Armageddon Project" begin to fall into place, Sam realizes the end is indeed near - for him."
