The dark side of the dark side . . . He has everything he should want in life. A good job. A nice home. A nice car. A beautiful wife and family. A retirement plan. An active social life. A prestigious reputation. Envious neighbours. A pet dog. Yet there remains an emptiness inside. In a search for meaning, he begins a journey from which he cannot return. Grasping at everything he can, experiments in ritual magick lead him into the realms of sex, drugs, organised crime, aliens and angels as his life spirals further and further up and down the paths of initiation and illumination while grappling with insanity, annihilation and transformation.

George O’Hare’s was born and raised on the West Side of Chicago in 1927 during the height of Jim Crow, when racism was a way of life for most white people. He went to an all-white grammar and high school, and was raised by an extremely racist uncle. George learned to be a racist at an early age, but when he joined Sears Roebuck as a salesman and his manager insisted that he become a member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, he found himself in the company of African Americans for the first time in his life. He met some of the most iconic African Americans in the country, and became good friends with Dr. Martin Luther King, comedian Dick Gregory, Father George Clements, Muhammad Ali, State Senator Barack Obama, and many others. Racism became a very hot topic of discussion in America in 2017 with an outgoing Black president and an incumbent president who is known for his racist remarks, legislature, and appointees. Confessions of a Recovering Racist addresses the fallacy of racism in a unique, honest, and sometimes humorous way. It causes white people to take a second look at their prejudices, and informs Black people that a white man can be a hero in the Black community.

Pulpit Confessions: Exposing the Black Church is an honest, behind the scenes look at the African-American church. The author, who preached his first sermon at age sixteen, spent a decade serving African American congregations. In this ground-breaking book, Moore illuminates a secular and cynical ministerial community that is adept at concealing the error of their ways under a cloak of pseudo holiness. The author examines the increasingly toxic power struggles between ministers and their congregations. Moore pulls no punches when he untangles the myths, unravels the mystique and reveals the secrets of the Black Church.

• Coal Mines, Confessions and Dance Halls with Return to the North and The Theatre of Self. This Autobiography is now a trilogy. By Vicky Aram. Vicky Aram was born into the middle of the Great Depression in the 1930s, in a close-knit mining district in England’s North East. In her print debut, Vicky escorts us on her journey from an atypically bohemian Northern Catholic environment to the Mayfair clubs of the 1970s, via self-discovery as an illustrator and fashionista. Vicky’s father – a dancer, theatre manager and sometime optician, and stylish mother – clad in veiled hats, feathers and fur – nurtured her creativity with piano lessons, which soon led to her recitals on the church organ. As the 1950s dawned, Vicky travelled to Sunderland to attend Art College and, inevitably, to learn to smoke – with style. Soon came the inevitable move south, to London, lodging at the YWCA in Bloomsbury with full board for £3 a week. She fell in with the creative set and landed a job as a fashion illustrator, illuminating pieces for magazines and the Daily Telegraph, attending all the couture shows, and becoming a part of the fabric of Soho. Always open to new adventures, Vicky met “the extraordinary person” who became her husband in the late 1950s. The freedom they afforded each other ensured that they were never thwarted in their ambition, be it his career in architecture or her burgeoning musical gifts. Vicky designed a collection for Harvey Nichols’ 21 boutique; his various homes featured in colour supplement style spreads. Following a brief interlude in Yorkshire, and the blessing of three children, they returned to London in time for the nascent 1970s and a change of direction. A chance meeting with an Australian musician opened the door to Vicky establishing herself as a singer and pianist. With a tendency towards jazz, blues and Motown, Vicky spent the next two decades serenading London’s elite – and sometimes less elite – in Mayfair clubs, West End hotels, restaurants and night spots. Vicky truly is the Nightjar described in these pages – a bird that sings by night, and sleeps by day – although family life and keeping a busy home left little time for rest. The pivotal moment in this book of sketches comes in September 1977. One night, as the summer nears its end, Vicky, the singer at Morton’s club in Berkeley Square, finds herself embroiled in one of the 20th Century’s most tragic, shocking motor accidents. In the 1980s, Vicky combines her musical engagements with a little housekeeping and the pleasure of raising her beautiful family. A long residency at The Canteen sees her mixing with the cream of the international jazz and blues scene, including Buddy Tate, Zoot Money, Chet Baker, Carol Grimes, Esther Phillips, Howard McGhee, Eric Burdon, Al & Joe Cohn, and Eddie Cleanhead Vinson. Later still, Vicky travels back to the North East and is re-acquainted with a long-lost love – whose story awaits us in the second volume of her memoirs. Vicky’s style is one of brevity, flavoured with an evocative turn of phrase. Ice skates hang on a hook ‘glittering like weapons’; her mother ‘looked like Coco Chanel’ while Marc Bolan ‘lay serene and silent, his brilliant green satin jacket catching the light from the slow dawn’. This slim volume leaves one wanting to know more, to ask a hundred questions; at the same time, it transports you to times of opportunity and notoriety, when creativity abounded and Vicky realised her destiny. She tells us that ‘the journey is the thrill and you must never arrive’, yet she allows us to share glimpses of that journey – one of definite accomplishment, love and happiness.

Frederic C. Howe lived in interesting times. By education (at Johns Hopkins in the early 1890s) and instinct he was a progressive, in the best sense of that term. From the Cleveland of Tom Johnson to the Washington of FDR he "unlearned" his early predjudices and given values, yet "under the ruins" of it all he kept his idealism.Howe's autobiographical record was originally published in 1925. Out of print for some time, this book is now available in a paperback reprint, offering a new introduction by James F. Richardson, professor of history and urban studies at the University of Akron. Richardson's helpful analysis covers Howe's distinguished career in public life and evaluates his contributions to early twentieth-century America.
