Harlem meets Puerto Rico in this spicy novel that explores true love and the truth about love... EXCERPT: Andre and I shared a boat ride under a starlit sky in Venice. Our gondolier paddled up the river singing an Italian love song. The streets were lined with gothic buildings that looked older than time itself. The charm of that ancient city partially submerged underwater took my breath away. I sipped from my glass of Cabernet Amadio and gazed into Andre’s cocoa-colored eyes as they sparkled in the moonlight. His butterscotch complexion was sun kissed from our afternoon together at Lido di Venezia beach. I gazed at his succulent lips and the muscular body that made my body sing from every position. Andre was a living work of art, but our connection went deeper than physical attraction. Like me, he was also biracial. The son of a Haitian mother and French Canadian father, he had lived through the wonderful and painful aspects of existing between two worlds. Despite his 7 figure income as an international commodity broker, he was a humble and caring man whose generous heart reminded me of my father. Andre was definitely my soul mate. He took my hand and said, “Faith, I have something to tell you. I know it this may shock you, because I’ve been keeping this inside for a long time...” DESCRIPTION: Faith Thomas-Moreno is a proud daughter of Spanish Harlem.

Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance
Harlem has captivated the imagination of writers, artists, intellectuals, and politicians around the world since the early decades of this century. Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance examines the cultural reawakening of Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s as a key moment in twentieth-century art history, one that transcended regional and racial boundaries. Published to coincide with the exhibition that opens in England and travels to the United States, this catalog reflects the Harlem Renaissance's impressive range of art forms—literature, music, dance, theater, painting, sculpture, photography, film, and graphic design. The participants included not only artists based in New York, but also those from other parts of the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe.Richard J. Powell and David A. Bailey present selected works that focus on six themes: Representing "The New Negro;" Another Modernism; Blues, Jazz, and the Performative Paradigm; The Cult of the Primitive; Africa: Inheritance and Seizure; and Jacob Lawrence's Toussaint L'Ouverture series. The visual arts from 1919 to 1938 included in the book suggest the extraordinary vibrancy of the time when Harlem was a metaphor for modernity. In spite of the importance of the Harlem Renaissance to early twentieth-century American culture and to the artistic climate of "Jazz Age" Paris and Weimar Berlin, few art exhibitions have been devoted exclusively to the subject. Rhapsodies in Black will be welcomed for its unique presentation of this creative time.
