B.J. Ray is on a hilarious journey with one goal in mind, an interracial marriage. For sixteen years, she has been planning her escape from the South Bronx projects. If she ignores the experiences and opportunities, she may be stuck with project dwelling forever. She encounters the challenge of having to ingest salt tablets and collect rocks in one-hundred-degree weather, a prerequisite for interracial dating. She also attends Hampton share parties where white folks drink out of paper cups, not Welch's grape jelly jars, and a share consists of a cot in the laundry room every fourth weekend. She finds invited guests to your home demand bottled water, request organic wines, organic foods, and really can't tell the difference about most things in life, not to mention water, foods, and wine. One March night, B.J. Ray attends her middle sister's birthday party with her younger sister and they are summoned to pick up the Carvel cake. They don't return until the wee hours of the morning. B.J. Ray meets a man and discovers that he is the key to her becoming a highly successful individual. Porgies Are Best: A Fishmonger's Daughter is a book of vignettes of a young African American, Jewish girl from the projects of the South Bronx, who experiences love, humor, misfortune, compassion, and accomplishment.

PORGY The novel tells the story of Porgy, a crippled street beggar living in the black tenements of Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1920s. We follow him as he woos Bess and for one shining moment becomes all that he has ever imagined himself capable of being before losing everything. Gripping and sympathetic a glimpse into Charleston’s past. Adapted in George Gershwin's masterpiece Porgy and Bess. With his white eyes, wonderful, poetic qualities in the inhabitants of Catfish Row that make them come alive. —Langston Hughes The first major southern novel to portray blacks without condescension —James M. Hutchisson PORGY This vintage book contains DuBose Heyward's 1925 novel, 'Porgy'. It is the tale of a crippled street urchin living in the black tenements of Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1920s. Porgy was based on a real-life resident of Charleston, Samuel Smalls. This novel constitutes a must-read for fans and collectors of Hayward's seminal work, and it would make for a great addition to any personal library. Edwin DuBose Heyward (1885 – 1940) was an American writer best remembered for his writing this novel, which was adapted for the stage by his wife in 1927. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author. PORGY

Created by George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward and sung by generations of black performers, Porgy and Bess has been both embraced and reviled since its debut in 1935. In this comprehensive account, Ellen Noonan examines the opera's long history of invention and reinvention as a barometer of twentieth-century American expectations about race, culture, and the struggle for equality. In its surprising endurance lies a myriad of local, national, and international stories. For black performers and commentators, Porgy and Bess was a nexus for debates about cultural representation and racial uplift. White producers, critics, and even audiences spun revealing racial narratives around the show, initially in an attempt to demonstrate its authenticity and later to keep it from becoming discredited or irrelevant. Expertly weaving together the wide-ranging debates over the original novel, Porgy, and its adaptations on stage and film with a history of its intimate ties to Charleston, The Strange Career of "Porgy and Bess" uncovers the complexities behind one of our nation's most long-lived cultural touchstones.

The abundance of seafood available from the northwest Gulf of Mexico includes hundreds of delicious species that are often overlooked by consumers. Celebrating this regional bounty, Texas Seafood showcases the expertise of longtime fishmongers and chefs PJ and Apple Stoops. Readers will find familiar fish like Red Snapper along with dozens of little-known finfish and invertebrates, including tunas, mackerels, rays, and skates, as well as bivalves, shrimps, crabs, and other varieties, many of which are considered “bycatch” (seafood that a fisher didn’t intend to catch), but are no more difficult to prepare and are just as delicious as those commonly found at your local supermarket. The Stoopses provide a complete primer on sourcing these wild-caught delicacies, with fascinating details about habitats and life cycles as well as practical advice on how to discern quality. Texas Seafood concludes with simple, delectable recipes, many infused with the flavors of Apple’s Thai heritage. Dishes such as Steamed Curried Crab, Crispy White Shrimp, Escolar on a Grill with Green Mango Salad, Cast Iron Roasted Gulf Coast Swordfish Steaks with Rio Grande Grapefruit, and Chicken-Fried Ribbonfish are just a few ways to savor the best of the Gulf.
