CONTROVERSIAL BOOK PROBES AFRICAN AMERICANS
(Craryville, New York, October 19, 2007) Able Journey Press ruffles some feathers within the African-American community with its April 2007 release of BLACK PEOPLE: FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY by W. Ivan Wright, a respiratory therapist in Ewing, New Jersey. According to sources at The Times New Jersey, the novel's protagonist, Jurney Swiftwood, is a carbon copy of Wright encompassing background, family values, authorial career, and philosophy. From cover to cover, Wright's alter-ego, Jurney Swiftwood, detonates dialogue that causes its story people and its readers to examine their perspectives, their lens at which they view the world from, their conscious and unconscious prejudices.
Current novels threaded with African-American characters are typically superficial and uneven with awareness-building social commentary and even weaker in encouraging paradigm shifts. While BLACK PEOPLE: FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY doubles as a corrective penance for Blacks and Whites alike, Wright spins an engaging tale that is fast paced, politically explosive, and packed with suspense at every punctuation mark. Wright seems to have the ability to tap into a reservoir of ancestral veins when fleshing out story people. "I've been told that I posses what the elders might have called an old spirit," says Wright, a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Here is a novel that painstakingly delves inside people's patterned perceptions. Wright makes his case by drawing the inference that we must all take inventory of our personal stock. BLACK PEOPLE: FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY will provide readers of all ethnic persuasions with a mirror to see their fugue behaviors and awaken their consciousness while thoroughly engrossed in a fictional reality.
