A kind of homecoming by E. R Braithwaite( Book )
20 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 532 libraries worldwide
From the bestselling author of To Sir, With Love comes the moving personal memoir of a westernized black man who journeys to Africa in search of his roots and discovers a vibrant and extraordinary society on the verge of monumental change In the early 1960s acclaimed British Guianese author E.R. Braithwaite embarked on a pilgrimage to the West African countries of Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, and across Sierra Leone just as the emerging nation was preparing to declare its independence. What Braithwaite discovered was a world vastly different from the staid, firmly established British society in which he had spent most of his life. In a place as foreign to him as the dark side of the moon, he was overcome by colorful sights, sounds, and smells that vividly reawakened lost memories from his childhood. Entering the intimate circles of the local intelligentsia, Braithwaite was able to view these newly evolving African societies from the inside, struck by their mixtures of passion and na & iuml;vet & eacute;, their political obsessions and technological indifference. The author discovered a world that fascinated, excited, and, in some cases, deeply troubled him & mdash;and in the process he discovered himself. E.R. Braithwaite & rsquo;s A Kind of Homecoming is at once an enthralling personal journey and an eye-opening chronicle of a time of great change on the African continent that helps us to better understand the West Africa of today
Choice of straws by E. R Braithwaite( Book )
25 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and held by 350 libraries worldwide
Identical twins Jack and Dave Bennett enjoy nothing better than a rowdy night out in London -- listening to hot jazz, hoisting a few pints, flirting with girls and then finishing off the evening by roughing up a stranger. But one night they ambush the wrong victim, a young black man who fights back. Suddenly bottles break and a knife is drawn, and when it's over, Jack stumbles home alone -- only to awaken the next morning to discover his brother's bed empty and policemen at the door. The police are investigating a fatal car accident that left two people dead, their bodies burned beyond recognition. One of the dead was apparently the car's owner, a young black doctor, but the only clue to the second corpse's identity is a knife engraved with Dave Bennett's name and address. And no words are spoken of a man found slain in an alley on the other side of town. With his life brutally upended, Jack finds that his search for answers is drawing him closer to the dead doctor's beautiful sister, Michelle, and causing him to question everything he's ever believed about race, justice, family, and the violent urban world around him
