The Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn by Henry Miller were banned in the United States of America for obscenity reasons that deemed each book as pornographic.

Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood
Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood is a film about Tom Wolfe’s study of the Magic City. I learned a great deal about his nature for retaining the social environment of people. While he walked around Miami scoping, telescoping, noting, writing, and interacting with different people, you felt as if you were walking with this man in the white suit.
As a Miamian I could truly appreciate the footage of the great author ambling through the city with respect to our culture.
"If you are looking for a good read, you won't go wrong with A to P. I look forward to the next novel from Chris Joseph Stancato.”

Stephan Bailey: A Valise of Doubt
“You’ve got this all wrong,” Tim Derr said to his best friend of thirty years, Stephan Bailey who sat next to him on a stool at a tavern in Miami called, 305 Brass. “First and foremost compadre, as a person who has known you the most, and the best wingman that a guy looking for a girl could ask for—it’s not a blind date.”

“I’ve been weeping for a mighty long time. Yes, I’ve been weeping for a mighty long time.”
Kim Whistler sang The Five Blind Boys song as if she was in the Overtown Baptist Church choir. She sang with the harmony of happiness and claps of praise. But she was three blocks and one little boy from the church. Her voice bounced off the inside of the boat as the acoustics allowed the sadness to sink into the old sea worn wood of a boat, forty feet in length.
In this neighborhood Read more [...]
