The fifth Beatle : the Brian Epstein story by Vivek J Tiwary( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, twenty-seven-year-old Brian Epstein walked into a dank Liverpool basement to see an unknown rock band perform--and our world was forever changed. The fifth Beatle is Epstein's untold true story: the tale of a genuine visionary who discovered, managed, and guided the Beatles to unprecedented international stardom, rewriting the rule of the pop music business in the process. But Brian Epstein was also the ultimate outsider, constantly searching for a place where he might belong. He helped spread the Beatles' message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless, seemingly insurmountable struggles that came with it"--Page 4 of cover
Birth of a nation : a comic novel by Aaron McGruder( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This scathingly hilarious political satire-produced from a collaboration of three of our funniest humorists-answers the burning question: Would anyone care if East St. Louis seceded from the Union? East St. Louis, Illinois ("the inner city without an outer city"), is an impoverished town, so poor that Fred Fredericks, its idealistic mayor, starts off Election Day by collecting the city's trash in his own minivan. But the mayor believes in the power of democracy and rallies his fellow citizens to the polls for the presidential election, only to find hundreds of them turned away for trumped-up reasons. Even sweet old Miss Jackson-not to mention the mayor himself-is denied the vote because her name turns up on a bogus list of felons. The national election hinges on Illinois's electoral votes and, as a result of the mass disenfranchisement of East St. Louis, a radical right-wing junta led by a dim-witted Texas governor seizes the Oval Office. Prodded by shady black billionaire and old friend John Roberts, Fredericks devises a radical plan of protest: East St. Louis will secede from the Union. Roberts opens an "offshore" bank (albeit in the heart of the U.S.) to finance the newly liberated country, and suddenly East St. Louis becomes the Switzerland of the American heartland, flush with money. It also begins to attract a motley circus of idealistic young militants, OPEC-funded hitmen, CIA operatives, tabloid reporters, and AWOL black servicemen eager to protect and serve the new nation. Problems set in almost immediately: Controversies rage over the name and national anthem of the new country (they decide on the Republic of Blackland with an anthem sung to the tune of the theme from Good Times), and local thug Roscoe becomes a warlord and turns his gang into a paramilitary force. When the U.S. military begins to move in, Fredericks is forced to decide whether his protest is worth taking all the way. Birth of a Nation starts with a scenario drawn from the botched election of 2000 and spins it into a brilliantly absurd work of sharply pointed satire. Along the way the authors lay into a host of hot social and cultural issues-skewering white supremacists, black nationalists, and everyone in between-drawing real blood and real laughs in equal measure in this riotous send-up of American politics

The complete K chronicles by Keith Knight( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

". . . Rapper/cartoonist Knight's ink-heavy strip is big on sight gags, inventive panel layouts and exaggerated gestures--and this omnibus volume shows a revealing arc in the strip's tone. The first part of the book, which begins in the early 1990s, sees Knight riffing on food, family, music and the life of a comic book artist in a scratchy, expressive style. As the strips progress and move into the 21st century, real-world events start to intrude, and the topic veers toward the political more often than not."--Publisher's Weekly
