The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley
The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey

sharon.bridgforth, January 9, 2011

Walter Mosley is my favorite writer. He once again has penned a book that is timely, adventurous, true to life and a great read. This book, like all of Mr. Mosley's books, is specifically based in a Los Angeles-working class-Black American world/filled with Southern sensibilities and the Blues. Where there are people from all over the world, people with vastly different backgrounds trying to figure out how to Be. I adore Mr. Mosley's global consciousness. He offers work that transcends constructs and conditions. His work is about the human Spirit. I especially appreciate this book because in it Mr. Mosley breaks open the world of dementia, from the inside out.

Decoded by Jay Z

sharon.bridgforth, January 9, 2011

Though I wish Jay Z had given at least a little focus to the ways that women historically and currently are treated in Hip Hop, and I wish he had given more of a nod to all the elements of Hip Hop (vs his sole focus on the MC), and I really found it heart breaking that he did not speak at all about his personal journey in taking accountability for selling crack (which he documents as something that destroyed the Black community). I still must say, that I love this book. I think it is extremely important and innovative (in how he makes the page come alive as Hip Hop). And it is a great read.
