Parrallel Time: Growing Up in Black and White, Brent STAPLES [signed]
3 Brent STAPLES [signed] Parrallel Time: Growing Up in Black and White
NY Pantheon 1994 0679421548 / 9780679421542 1st Edition Hardcover As New As New Book Signed by Author(s)
In his memoir, Brent Staples poses some compelling questions: Where does the family end the self begin? What do we owe our families and what do we owe ourselves? What part of the past is a gift and what part a shackle? As the eldest son among nine children, Brent grew up in a small industrial town near Philadelphia. Scholarship opportunities pulled him out of the black world where he had grown up into a world largely defined by whites. Meanwhile, as the industries that supported his hometown failed, and drug dealing rushed in to fill the economic void, news of arrests and premature deaths among Brent's childhood friends underscored his precarious perch in a mostly white environment. The death of his younger brother -- a cocaine dealer murdered by one of his "clients" -- propelled Brent into a reconsideration of his childhood that offers vivid portraits of family values that supported, pressures that tore apart, and the appeal and pain of living as an adult in a world that was literally and figuratively miles away from the one he knew as a child.

6 Francine Du Plessix Gray Simone WEIL (Signed)
NY Viking Press 2001 0670899984 / 9780670899982 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7 Signed by Author(s)
In Simone Weil, du Plessix Gray vividly evokes the life of a complex and intriguing figure. A patriot and a mystic, an unruly activist plagued by self-doubt, a pampered intellectual with a credo of manual labor, an ascetic who craved sensuous beauty, Simone Weil died at the age of thirty-four prematurely after a long struggle with anorexia. But her tremendous intellectual legacy foresaw many of the twentieth century's great changes and continues to influence philosophy today. Simone Weil traces this seminal thinker's transformation from privileged Parisian student to union organizer, activist, and philosopher as well as the complex evolution of her ideas on Christianity, politics, and sexuality. It is a thoughtful and compelling biography.
