Arden Reviews: Nobody by Marc Lamont Hill

Twenty years ago I read Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man and it changed me. It opened my innocent eyes to a world where a man lived every day and never felt seen. We never learn this man’s name. We simply know he’s black and poor. To himself, and the world around him, he’s nobody. Yet, he’s always beenContinue reading “Arden Reviews: Nobody by Marc Lamont Hill”

This little tidbit about myself matters because I’m reviewing a book tailored almost exclusively to married folks; especially those in their first year of marriage. So, if you’re not married either, then you may wanna forward this post toContinue reading “Arden Reviews: Let The Marriage Begin!”
