Editorial Reviews


Good writing can make the controversial exciting and even appealing. Ben Burgess isn't a good writer. He's a great one.Black and White takes two racially charged legal cases that would be problematic for any attorney and gives them to a team that consists of one black lawyer and a white one. They have very different backgrounds. They have very different lives, even though they work for the same firm. This entire novel is a study in the contrast between white lives in America and black lives in America. Ben Burgess writes about this difference, not by telling us but by showing us. Black and White is about as realistic as writing can get. It takes a master to get America just right in a story like this and Ben Burgess does a masterful job of dissecting life from various social, economic, and legal perspectives. Ray Simmons *Readers Favorite
This is urban fiction at its best and it's a ride, a very fast and thrilling one. The first element of this novel that captivated me was the enormous conflict which involves racism, indicated through the novel by the great dialogues. Here is an invective that captures racism in one of the interesting conversations: "Shut up, you ugly Black monkey, before I tell Uncle Curtis not to give your bum ass family any food." The reader will have a keen interest in the balance that comes through between character, plot, and setting. One has the impression they are reading a well-calculated and beautifully executed drama. The writing is great and it features exciting conversations that help to deepen plot and character. This is a story that succinctly displays the reality of racism in the US. Ben Burgess Jr. has a gift for plot and character and Black and White handles one of the controversial themes in today's American debate; a really satisfying read. Divine Zape * Readers Favorite

Black and White is not just a crime story but a coming-of-age novel. The cases mirror modern events. Chapters revealing the in-depth histories of the characters added another dimension. -Danita Dyess *Readers Favorite
