SeaWolf Press Releases Two New Books in Its Black History Collection

 Just in time for Black History Month, SeaWolf Press has added two new books to their Black History Collection. They each have their own unique story and most people are unaware of the controversy about who reached the North Pole first.

A Negro Explorer at the North Pole by Matthew Henson
Matthew Alexander Henson, born in 1866 to sharecropper parents, was an African American explorer who accompanied Robert Peary on seven voyages to the Arctic over a period of nearly 23 years. The first African American made a life member of The Explorers Club, he was awarded the Hubbard Medal by the National Geographic Society, and even had a lunar crater named after him. A Negro Explorer at the North Pole is his account of the expedition to the North Pole in 1908 with Commander Peary. Henson mastered the Inuit language and was a skilled craftsman and outdoorsman. Henson was identified as the first member of the party to actually reach the pole.

The House Behind the Cedars by Charles Chesnutt
Charles Waddell Chesnutt was an American author born to parents who were both “free persons of color.” Charles identified as African American but noted that he was seven-eighths white. He is best known for his stories exploring complex issues of racial and social identity in the post-Civil War South. He was also active in the NAACP. The House Behind the Cedars was published in 1900. The story occurs in the southern American states of North and South Carolina a few years following the American Civil War. It follows a woman of mixed white and black ancestry who chooses to live as a white woman. Her racial identity is called into question when she falls in love with a white aristocrat. The portrayal of interracial romantic relations was very controversial at the time.

Unsolicited Press Releases the Novel “Lily Narcissus” by New York Author Jonathan Lerner

 They thought they were going to Asia for two years. Asia beguiled them, and they never left.

In 1957, Lily and Sid Norell and their teenagers Lauren and Jordy move from Washington to Taipei. Sid is an eager new Foreign Service Officer. Taipei then was impoverished and unpaved. Shocked at first, Lily is soon enchanted by the foreignness, moved by the poverty, amused by the eccentric whirl of diplomats and expats around her, and charmed by debonair Rocky Perreira. Also a U.S. diplomat, he seems to live freely like no one she has ever known.

Lily makes unexpected new friends, discovers a passion in protecting orphans, and becomes a deft and acclaimed hostess. Thriving, she and Sid move on to Foreign Service postings in Saigon, then Bangkok and eventually Jakarta. Meanwhile Jordy grows up to be a Navy pilot, fighting in Vietnam. He participates in and is traumatized by the disastrous war-end evacuation of Saigon. Lauren too gets entangled with that war; it starts her career as a refugee worker.

Decades later Lauren, reading letters Lily wrote during those first years in Taipei, fills in her mother’s elisions. What was wrong with Jordy, so often in trouble? Were Rocky and Sid both CIA? And were Rocky and Lily lovers? Why did the family spin apart, and how did Lily herself make that happen?

This is the story of a woman who confronts a challenging new situation and seizes the chance to powerfully reinvent herself—while her family slowly disintegrates.

Advance Praise for “Lily Narcissus”

“Lily Narcissus is at once intimate family portrait and panoramic world history that tracks the disastrous consequences of America’s involvement in Asia in the second half of the 20th century. With precision and restraint, Lerner illuminates some essential mystery at the heart of other people and our understanding of them. It’s beautiful, wise, lucid, and disarming. I was seduced, then devastated.” -Andrew Palmer, author of The Bachelor

About Jonathan Lerner

Jonathan Lerner, born in 1948, grew up in Washington, D.C., with the exception of two years in the late fifties when his father, a Foreign Service officer, was posted to Taipei. That experience, and the journeys there and back which took his family literally around the world, primed a lifelong addiction to travel. It was also the germ for his new novel “Lily Narcissus.”

Lerner matriculated at Antioch College in 1965, but dropped out two years later and immersed himself in New Left activism, joining the staff of Students for a Democratic Society. His early writing experiences were producing SDS publications and contributing to other counterculture and “underground” newspapers. In 1969 he helped found the breakaway SDS faction the Weatherman. That became the clandestine and cult-like Weather Underground, which carried out a campaign of bombings. These experiences—and the challenges of being a young man struggling with his gay identity in a macho group culture—informed both Lerner’s novel “Alex Underground” and his memoir “Swords in the Hands of Children.”

“When I stopped trying to be a full-time revolutionary, in the mid-seventies, I embraced my calling to be a full-time writer,” Lerner says. His first novel, “Caught in a Still Place,” was published in 1989. Meanwhile he had begun establishing what became a successful career as a magazine writer and editor. Early on he wrote mostly travel stories, typically with a design or historic preservation angle. Later he concentrated on topics including architecture, urban planning, and issues of natural resources and sustainability. His work has appeared in The New York Times, Metropolis, The Architect’s Newspaper and numerous other publications. He has been a contributing editor at Landscape Architecture Magazine for the last decade.

During the eighties Lerner lived in various parts of Florida, and after that for 21 years in Atlanta. In 2011 he moved to New York’s Hudson Valley, to live with Peter Frank, a philanthropist and community activist, whom he married in 2015.
