How to Make Love to a Negro Without Getting TiredDany LaFerriere (Author), David Homel (Translator)
Brilliant and tense, Dany Laferrière's first novel, How to Make Love to a Negro Without Getting Tired, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in Canada in 1985. With ribald humor and a working-class intellectualism on par with Charles Bukowski's or Henry Miller's, Laferrière's narrator wanders the streets and slums of Montreal, has sex with white women, and writes a book to save his life. With this novel, Laferrière began a series of internationally acclaimed social and political novels about the love of the world, and the world of sex, includingHeading South and I Am a Japanese Writer. It launched Laferrière as one of the literary world's finest provocateurs and continues to draw strong comparisons to the writings of James Baldwin, Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac. The book was made into a feature film and translated into several languages — this is the first U.S. edition.

My first published fantasy novel, The Soul Cages, has been re-released by Mocha Memoirs Press, LLC. The Soul Cages is available in both ebook format and in print.
Blurb: For Sarah, imprisonment in Solis's soul cages meant an absence of senses. Unable to feel, to taste, to smell, or to love, Sarah's driven by her desire to escape and to become flesh once more. When she's rescued by the legendary ministers of souls, Sarah's elation is short lived. The legendary knights, led by prince Marion of Veloris, are splintered and prone to in-fighting and jealousy. With Valek's power growing, Sarah and Marion embark on a dangerous quest to stop Valek, his plans, and the massive abduction of thousands of souls. Sarah must find her inner strength and search her own soul to uncover courage to face her former tormentor--and to embrace love, something she never saw coming. With betrayal, action, magic, and love, The Soul Cages, is one fast ride.
