Now, you all know that I have a thick book phobia. I still believe that any book that is over 700 pages can be cut down to 350, by eliminating the bullsh_t. I've become more lenient with non-fiction books, especially if the author has a compelling voice. You all know that I recently finished the Nella Larsen biography. I never did finish the Ralph Ellison one. I started it but then school started so that was that. It's a big sucker too. Anyway, its a thick sucka too. I'm going to finish it sometime next month. So, Steve S. get ready. Now, I noticed that I got the biography of Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins biography, Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins: Black Daughter of the Revolution by Lois Brown. For those of you who have not heard of Pauline Hopkins, Hopkins was an AA author at the turn of the century. I've read a short story of hers before and at one time tried to read a compilation book that featured three of her magazine novels. Next month I decided to spend time with Miss Pauline, her books and her biography (a thick one).
