METAMORPHOSIS IN BLACK
Paperback. ©2013 James Robert Butler.
In spite of his relatively humble beginnings in the inner-city community of Harlem, New York, the author has carved out a niche, as he has been, over time, transplanted in various regions throughout the rich soil of North America.
Up through the world and underworld of individual and corporate greed, his struggle to overcome the ecstasy and agony of debilitating alcohol and drug addiction is profound.
His journey is, in many ways, a saga of self-determination through adversity...with a sprinkling of success.
This, therefore, is a compelling story that can inspire countless generations of every ethnic stripe. His message strongly reinforces that, in America, anyone can scale the heights and panorama of their individual dreams. It is a testament to the human spirit to survive and prosper at any and all cost.
