Platitudes : & the new Black aesthetic by Trey Ellis ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Trey Ellis's debut novel, Platitudes, first published in 1988, takes on conflicts within the African American literary community. Dewayne Wellington, a failing black experimental novelist, and Isshee Ayam, a radical feminist author, collaborate on Dewayne's latest sexist comedy. Alternately telling the story about the coming of age of Earle and Dorothy - two black middle-class teenagers, sex-starved in New York City - the battling writers sneak ever, and dangerously, closer to reconciling their literary disputes." "This edition of Platitudes also includes "The New Black Aesthetic," a groundbreaking essay by Ellis that appeared in the journal Callaloo."--BOOK JACKET

Bedtime stories : adventures in the land of single-fatherhood by Trey Ellis ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
How is a single dad supposed to navigate a new girlfriend into and out of his California king without his son or daughter noticing? For Trey Ellis, steering his way through the unfamiliar nuances of the contemporary dating scene is sometimes a nerve-racking exercise in intra-familial spycraft. But the rewards of being a dad, as any parent knows, easily outweigh any hardships. In a world where African-American fathers are relentlessly portrayed as absent without leave, this irresistible memoir is both a tribute to all those loving, nurturing, black men who are undaunted by the responsibilities of fatherhood and an utterly charming male nonfiction counterpart to Allison Pearson's best-selling novel, I Don't Know How She Does It
