Songs of the Zodiac: In Doo-Wop America, is a novel about intellectual life and show business during the Civil Rights era
It is at once a coming of age, political and performing arts novel. And a love story. This experimental work is sexual. The sometimes delicate and sometimes explicit sexual scenes serve to reveal the personalities of the central characters. The book contains occasional violence. The violence however, like the sex, is never gratuitous. It might be added that although there is humor running through these pages, the author might have said (Using an expression popular among serious Negroes in the era of this story) I laugh and joke. But I do not play. Songs of the Zodiac is a novel of enlightenment and entertainment.
