Using the baseball analogy that is the woven throughout the book, Wayne Rickman in Fair-to-Fabulous in Fifteen Minutes has hit a homerun! Drawing upon his extensive experience in marketing, sales, coaching, parenting, and life, Mr. Rickman has succeeded where many of his predecessors have not. Fair-to-Fabulous is not only entertaining and inspirational, but it is also educational and useful. Rather than simply relying upon “feel good” stories or “five rules for a lifetime of bliss,” the book employs the use of questions rather than pat answers. By posing carefully crafted sets of basic questions and open lists for the reader to consider and then answer in each chapter, by the end the reader has not only been on an illuminating journey of self-discovery, but even more importantly a clearer path forward towards a more rich and rewarding personal and professional life. It truly does take you around the proverbial bases and by the time you reach home plate, you really do feel “fabulous” about your ability to shape and respond to what the future has in store. Love Fair to Fabulous, this is a winner Wayne.“ Andy Abrams, President and Dean Charleston School of Law”

Contemporary American Literature and the Reinvention of Lesbian and Gay Identities

2013 Honorable Mention, Asian American Studies Association's prize in Literary Studies Part of the American Literatures Initiative Series Why do black characters appear so frequently in Asian American literary works and Asian characters appear in African American literary works in the early twentieth century?Interracial Encounters attempts to answer this rather straightforward literary question, arguing that scenes depicting Black-Asian interactions, relationships, and conflicts capture the constitution of African American and Asian American identities as each group struggled to negotiate the racially exclusionary nature of American identity. In this nuanced study, Julia H. Lee argues that the diversity and ambiguity that characterize these textual moments radically undermine the popular notion that the history of Afro-Asian relations can be reduced to a monolithic, media-friendly narrative, whether of cooperation or antagonism. Drawing on works by Charles Chesnutt, Wu Tingfang, Edith and Winnifred Eaton, Nella Larsen, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Younghill Kang, Interracial Encounters foregrounds how these reciprocal representations emerged from the nation’s pervasive pairing of the figure of the “Negro” and the “Asiatic” in oppositional, overlapping, or analogous relationships within a wide variety of popular, scientific, legal, and cultural discourses. Historicizing these interracial encounters within a national and global context highlights how multiple racial groups shaped the narrative of race and national identity in the early twentieth century, as well as how early twentieth century American literature emerged from that multiracial political context.
