I'm in search of books written by African American writers like, E. Lynn Harris, Donna Hill and Terry McMillan. I prefer hardcovers but I'll also accept softcovers too.

History books, politics, sports,....any genre is fine. If you have something let me know. Also take a look at my bookshelf, maybe you'll find something too.

Oh, and I prefer books that are in fairly good condition.I don't like worn out books.

There was an article in Vanity Fair a few months ago about African authors.  It was an issue devoted to Africa.  Perhaps you can find it at the library and check it out.  I remember very few of the authors they mentioned...Chinua Achebe, Nadine Gordimer...

You can have them both for one credit if you are interested.

She is the most fantastic woman - lives here in Atlanta, is also a playwright....she's been thru a lot of STUFF!!  Her work is wonderful....I have a sinus infection right now - so my vocabulary is limited - since my head feels about two feet wide!!

I've read alot of Toni Morrison & Alice Walker - was so sad when her house burned down with her original manuscripts.....have you read Toni Morrison's Nobel Prize speech?  I recommend.
