When he was thirteen years old he became a man………………………
Upcoming author Obama Christ’s ten part epic of a child made to fend for himself are both articulate and thought provoking. Avoiding common stereotypes made in street literature, he opts to write real people who speak to oppression and breath life onto the page.
Caesar Augustus Freeman is a child born in the ghetto with little opportunity other than superior intelligence and a sixth sense about human nature. His mother is both mentally and emotionally abusive, his environment is poor and physically confining, and the school system is failing him.
In an unexpected twist of fate, Caesar is left alone on the streets to fend for himself under the tutelage of criminals. With the guidance of Andre Cole, a hustler with an affinity for black power and doing for self, he learns not only the ways of the block, but how to become a man.
Caesar is blessed with a high IQ and photographic memory, which leads to him being both class valedictorian and number one hustler on the streets simultaneously. As he approaches eighteen with a pocket full of money, he is forced to choose between being kingpin of the block and walking in a different direction. The choice will not only change his life, but rock the core of his community.
If you have ever stood with your back against the wall and were uncertain how you were going to make it you will love Hard Knock Life. If you are an underdog trying to rise above adversity, Hard Knock Life is the book for you. If you have ever been in dysfunctional relationships, lived in a depressed environment, or just love a good story, Hard Knock Life will not disappoint.
Imagine Boyz in the Hood, Paid in Full, Scarface, The Wire or Menace II Society come to life as an ongoing series for the page. Hard Knock Life is just as cinematic as it is heavy on words. The cover art by New York's Marty O' Neil is also exceptional.
