What did you like best about this book?
“The author has conceived an interesting and very different sort of biography in combining often vivid reactions to cinematic and other entertainment influences mostly music - along with the many ups and downs of his busy life. Termed a Cinemoir, the book provides a striking roster of candid and intimate experiences from childhood to late middle age. Many experiences clearly relate to the cinematic and musical fare. His opinions of what he had seen, and other aspects and people in his life, have a convincing honesty. The montage of images, ideas, and people provides an illuminating portrait of an unusual individual. His prolonged collegiate studies, jobs and their assorted responsibilities, and romantic interests all come alive with intriguing and incisive commentary. One vital relationship is especially recorded with actual email messages between the author and his girlfriend. Many current events in the U.S., including the impact of inter-racial elements, come into critical play. Reading the book provides a rich tapestry of a man’s life and loves, especially as they are affected by his film and musical tastes” Thursday, January 10, 2013 2:16 PM

“The material is really exceptional - personal as well as informative and creative. ...(your) life has been so focused on film and putting forth cultural ideas, it seems only logical that your journey should reveal itself in a book of this type."

thought about my presentation and reading of Reel Talk: A Cinemoir
A friend in California read a Review Copy and thought it is:
“…a book of film reviews; a series of love stories; about Black people in America; about being seen as and called ‘white’ when you are a proud Black man; interracial dating/love and its hazards; portrait of three cities Detroit, San Francisco & Atlanta.”
Consider and view this.
A book of and for the New Millenium. My Cinemoir is the story, my website and FACEBOOK Photo Pages are some of the images. Taken together they are a potent mélange on my life and times in, out, around and through media.
