An Amazon Top #10 Bestseller Best of the Month Indie Top Pick (July) A Book Club Best of the Month (August) When the summer of heighten social tension plunge the city into deep disarray, an African-American family struggles to come to terms with accusations against one of their own…A “painfully beautiful novel of hope and transformation” (The Times Literary Weekly). For the bestselling awarding-winning author: When I sat down to begin the long and difficult task of writing the first draft of ‘The Silent Other Half’, I was in jail which is an excellent environment for the task. My crime was trespassing. That evening I ran out of the medication that controlled my schizophrenia. In jail, I was inspired by Homer’s Odysseus to write `The Silent Other Half’. The Odyssey of Homer, turned out not to be the mythology that I had imagined: an accumulation of “tales and legends,” whose sole end is to tickle and amuse. Far from being reducible to literary entertainment, Homer’s Odyssey is at its core the wisdom of Greek philosophy, a philosophy that sketched out for me a blueprint for accepting what troubled me and finding that sweetness which comes after grief. The evening of my arrest, I had been off my medication for days, I started hearing sinister voices, the voices of Moby-Dick like crustaceans: giant krill and crabs. The powerful voices told me that I had been crucified by obscurity and indifference, and now reborn again I must convince people to revalue all their values, if the demonic voices are to stop. Predictably, this sort of thinking ends in the local hoosegow. While writing ‘The Silent Other Half’, my cellmate frequently took a dump, afterward he would turn around and taste it then wash it down with a hand full of toilet water. It’s like Dante’s purgatory or the Buddhist’s jigoku hell where many people like me cycle back and forth between jail and hospitalization. Both mental illness and criminal records carry stigmas that are hard to explain. But here, I will try! “Thought-provoking and intriguing…. [A]powerful story that is gripping and insightful.” MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW “Ambitious and topical….” KIRKUS REVIEW
