First Review of Brian Copeland's New Book

Not_a_Genuine_Black_Man.jpg Publisher's Weekly has the first review of Brian Copeland's new book, "Not a Genuine Black Man: Or How I Learned to Be Black in the Lily-White Suburbs," which is due to be released on July 11, 2006.

The review, though quite brief, ends with the following positive impressions, "Copeland's comedic talent is evident throughout the book, though he concedes that he uses laughter to keep the pain at bay and endured a time when he descended into depression. Honest and engaging, this memoir is a valuable book for anyone trying to straddle racial lines, for anyone who has ever felt out of place."

The first printing run will reportedly number 35,000 copies.
