2. Guest: Deolis Allen
Guest summary: Deolis Allen is the author of three books, The Last 48, Test of Love and his most recent book, World Orphan Presents: Children of the Residue.
About the book World Orphan Presents: Children of the Residue:
Children of the Residue is a fiction based on actual people used to capture the tragedy of broken homes effects on whole communities. The broken home is stimulated from failed relationships, drugs and economic disparity. In turn the children of the home seek love and strength in all the wrong places. Through their travels they learn contempt for the world.
This read is a sharp blade journeying through the forgotten pockets of America’s ghetto. Set in the 1990s of Detroit’s west side, the reader will learn the effects of the crack epidemic from both sides of the fence. The fictional adolescents in this novel are only mirror glimpses into today’s adults. This novel illustrates the subtle decay of morals, transformation of values and ill imprisoned thought processes that made us what we are.
Corzell is a child nurtured by abandonment, rape and hate. Corzell’s naturally good heart becomes poisoned by the conditions of the ghetto norms and society’s iron handed justice. Power in Corzell’s mind is perversely realized when he successfully pulls his first breaking and entering. Corzell graduates to dope dealing, drug trafficking and armed robbery.
Book 2 illustrates how young men, especially, evolve from being junior high boyfriends to high school predators (players). This piece shows the vulnerability and insensitivity in women that many men overlook in their immaturity. Book 2 demonstrates how the high school hallways for education become arenas of conquest.
While Antwaun Bishop learns his art of manipulation and seduction from his big shot lawyer father, Sharon Stuard’s home is off balance and marred in tragedy. These two children find one another and compliment their loneliness. Neither of them ever reach an understanding of the feeling they believe is love.
