The Manhood of Benjie Lasser is a coming of age novel full of the sights, sounds and smells of Brooklyn and the Bronx in the 1950’s. Benjie Lasser is a young boy preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, the religious rite symbolizing passage from boyhood into manhood. But, Benjie is also preparing for manhood in other, less tangible ways. Prompted by the desire to spend more time with his wife and son, Benjie’s father, Herman, moves his family from Brooklyn to the Bronx, a block from the fruit and vegetable store where he has been employed for twenty years. This is also a move away from family, however: from Bubbe, Benjie’s grandmother, the mainstay of the family, who is slowly dying of cancer, and from Uncle Max, a man with his own heartbreak, finding his way back to life after the death of his wife. In the course of a few years, Benjie and the family that surrounds him, make a tremendous journey. The reader will enjoy traveling with them in this evocative novel.

�â�€�œStories of desire, chance, promise, brought from the down below. Against the rules of heaven, what hope is there?�â�€� Ted tells stories. High on a cloud above Mount Washington, he peers down at the earth, listening to the memories of the mortal folk he watches. Lola, once a famous Hollywood bombshell, now a god, listens to his stories. Ted�â�€�™s words capture her heart, just as she captured the hearts of her fans. Down on Earth, three families experience joy, tragedy, hope, and loss. Milton and Theresa are activists, conservationists, parents, lovers, fighters. Johnnie Cochan is a self-styled ecological leader, haunted by sadness and fear. And Carney is a disaster recovery specialist who can quench an oil-platform fire but finds love hard to hold onto. Through their attractions and battles, their futures become bound, as Cochan�â�€�™s vision for a new utopia, a massive construction project, threatens to rupture everything. Whatever Lola Wants is story about stories�â�€�”those we tell others, and those that fill us up. It is also about the stories we tell ourselves and the ways they make us who we are�â�€�”admired artists, despised monsters, adored immortals.

By contrast, in the works of black writers from Oscar Micheaux to Toni Morrison, the black experience has been more fully, more accurately, and usually more sympathetically realized; and from the early days of film, select filmmakers have looked to that literature as the basis for their productions.".
