Controversial New Book "Just Another 'N'" Shakes Up Literary World
Nationwide (October 12, 2012) -- Darius Stephens' book, Just Another 'N' (subtitled "Just Another Nigger/Just Another Nigga), is the talk of the literary world. The book has been highly touted by an Academy Award winning film maker and an Oscar winning composer. Hall of Fame baseball legend Joe Morgan says, "Author Darius Stephens has written a grand-slam book."
The book is about David Williams, a black man that does not like black people. Money, arrogance, prestige and greed are the lubricants that move the wheels of his decision making process. He is a superstar lawyer that goes to prison after being convicted for homicide by a corrupt prosecutor. David is torn between two worlds, black and white... good and evil. He struggles to affiliate with his culture and the real meaning of the words, nigga and nigger.
Just Another 'N' is a riveting page turner full of action and passion. Melissa Knight, a literary expert and blogger, says, "Darius Stephens may be one of the most exciting new authors, joining the elite ranks of the world's top authors. The rumors, according to some sources in publishing circles, say that Just Another 'N' and other Stephens' books, could be amongst the biggest auctions in recent years."
The book has received positive reviews from Academy Award winning filmmaker, Roger Corman, who says, "Darius Stephens' Just Another 'N' was a great read! There's little question that it will be made into a motion picture." Oscar winning composer, Bill Conti says, "Darius Stephens brings great insight to the racial problems in America.
Stephens makes a statement by exploring the subjects of race and stereotypes, by shining a light on what the use of a single, brutal word can sometimes do to an individual, to a culture, and to a nation. He is aiming to do much more than merely entertain.
Recently, Stephens did a lengthy interview about his book on the Jordan Rich Show, a syndicated show on WBZ- AM Boston, a CBS affiliate, heard in 38 states and Canada. Darius made the comment during the interview about a national segment involving The View TV show. Mr. Stephens indicated, "Although The View is one of his favorite shows, Barbara Walters and Sherri Shepherd were mistaken in their opinions concerning utilization of the 'n' word, while millions watched the segment. No one should use the 'n' word, not blacks or whites to describe Afro-Americans. Historically, there have been a lot of Blacks murdered and that was the last word they heard."
Stephens also made a point in that radio broadcast, that had record ratings, that "there is a lot of tension between all of the races. But Blacks, Whites, Mexicans, Indians and Asians all need each other and need to appreciate their diversity. God made this life so that it (is) a walk that cannot be done alone."
