About the Author
A product of the divisive racial ideologies of the South, Gee Joyner was reared in an upper-class suburban enclave that allowed him to channel his distinct, and often times uncanny perception of American culture, through Man's first, and most profound medium, the written rhetoric. Having obtained both a Bachelors and Masters degree in English Literature from the University of Memphis, he has utilized his rhetorical prowess as an empowering tool of social commentary to record the dichotomy and disturbing behaviors indicative of God's wonderful and complex creation; humanity. After surviving an attempted murder in 2002 and using his skills in composition to aid and assist troubled juveniles in their quest to overcome the sociopolitical, economical, and violent pitfalls indicative of U.S. culture, Joyner now embarks on a sojourner to infiltrate the literary world by documenting his take on America and the attributes thereof that define what it truly is to be American. His Masters thesis, White Man's Fame, Black Man's Shame: The American Textual Canon's Negative Depiction of African American's in Mass Media, resides in the Ned McWherter Library at the University of Memphis and is a document of depth that further explains his literary, social, and cultural convictions. An intellect, scholar, and rhetorical genius, Joyner lies in wait as America's next literary laureate. In the vein of William Shakespeare, William Faulkner, Ralph Ellison, Nella Larsen, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, Gee Joyner's works are destined to be blueprints for future writers of substance, and transcendent, and omnipotent content. Joyner is currently a professor in the Fine Arts and Humanities Department at the historical LeMoyne-Owen College in Memphis. -Navar Ero

I would have also loved to see what the author was thinking and trying to accomplish by writing a story like Pipers Gap. It was so intriguing and raw but the way it was written left me wondering and wanting more. I don't want to get into spoilers but I wanted so much more. I wanted the hard history and the reasons behind this story. I guess that is a question for an interview. I will have to do some digging around and see if there is anything that has already answered these questions for me.
I think this book could benefit from more details and length because it left me so hungry for more. It was excellently written and grammatically correct in every way, which is a big deal for me. :)
I would recommend it.
