In the early days of the new millennium, pages of a worn and weathered original sonata manuscript-the gift of a Czech immigrant living out her final days in Queens-come into the hands of Meta Taverner, a young musicologist whose concert piano career was cut short by an injury. To Metas eye, it appears to be an authentic eighteenth-century work; to her discerning ear, the music rendered there is commanding, hauntingly beautiful, clearly the undiscovered composition of a master. But there is no indication of who the composer might be. The gift comes with the caveat that Meta attempt to find the manuscripts true owner-a Prague friend the old woman has not heard from since the Second World War forced them apart-and to make the three-part sonata whole again. Leaving New York behind for the land of DvorÃ¯Â¿Â½k and Kafka, Meta sets out on an unforgettable search to locate the remaining movements of the sonata and uncover a story that has influenced the course of many lives, even as it becomes clear that she isnt the only one after the musics secrets.

Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps documents the role of the twenty-one white, self-avowed socialist, atheist, and Marxist founders of the NAACP and their impact on the black communitys present status at the top of our nations misery index. It highlights the decades of anti-black legislation supported by liberal black leaders who prioritized class over race in their zeal for the promises of socialism. Their anti-black legislation, dating back with the 1932 Davis-Bacon Act, continues today to suppress inter-community black capitalism, federal construction-related black employment, work and job experience for black teenagers, quality education access for urban black children, and the role of black men as leaders within the family unit. Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps highlights the strategy, used in 1910, to inject the atheist ideology of socialism into a once enterprising, self-sufficient, competitive, and proud Christian black community. A portion of that community, the conservative black middle class, is positioned to pull our nation back from this abyss.
