The rain kept up. Day after day after day it kept up. I stayed in my room. Della brought in my meals. Alan finished the rototilling and went to the nursery for seeds. He came to show me what vegetbles he’d chosen to plant and shook a handful of seeds on to his palm. “Look, Kit, absolutely perfect. I’ll plant the leafy stuff now ...lettuce, spinach, cabbage, and I’ll pollinate=by hand. In spring I’ll plant squash, tomatoes and –“ “I don’t care what you plant! I’m sick. Don’t you know I’m sick? You killed Mom. You took her from me. She gave meaning to my life.” “Kit, I didn’t kill –“ “Now I’m back to the start. The nightmares ...” I stroked my forehead. “You don’t know my nightmares.” “That’s because you’ve shut yourself up in this room. Why don’t you get out there and start living? Della’s just a kid. She needs you, Kit.” “What about me? Don’t I need someone?” “Yes, that little eleven year-old. She lost a mother. You lost a son. You could give each other so much.” “My son was white.” “If Mom had been black would you have cared for her?” My eyes ached with those hateful tears. They lodged there like rocks, pushing against my eyeballs, yet still refusing to fall. I tried to picture Mom with a black face. I saw her only as she haunted me, peaceful and smiling while I read that stupid Bible to her. I had loved her so much that day ... her color would have been negligible. But to compare her face with Della’s black one, to suggest Della could ever take my son’s place ... Sweet Jesus, no child but my own could take Mark’s place. Alan’s eyes turned to steel. He clenched his fist and shook the seeds in his palm, as if debating whether to fling them at me. He left the room. I stood and watched rain pelt the patio. A monstrous idea crept into my head. It Started to grow. No child but my own. My own.... ********* February sixteenth. Mark’s birthday. The idea obsessed me completely now. I could think of nothing else. I would call him Mark. He would have my black hair, my pale skin, my dark eyes, my long body. And I ... I would have my son. Della entered with a dinner tray. I told her to send Alan in. He responded to my request almost two hours later. It was the first time I’d seen him since he showed me the seeds. He said he and Della had been watching Gone with the wind. What did I want ? I didn’t hedge. “I want you to get me pregnant.” “What?” “I need someone to love.” His mouth curled with contempt. “As long as the kid’s white, huh? You effing snob!” “Don’t you use that word to me.” A cynical look darkened his eyes. The look turned to desire. He reached past me as if to switch off the lamp on the night table, but changed his mind and left it on. He slipped a hand inside my robe and cupped a breast “No foreplay!” I screeched, backing away. “I don’t want any foreplay. Just – just do it!” “You bitch,” he said, reaching toward me as I continued to back away. “You bitch,” he said again, and I knew by his trembling voice that he would stay.

Throughout his career, Eduardo Galeano has turned our understanding of history and reality on its head. Isabelle Allende said his works “invade the reader’s mind, to persuade him or her to surrender to the charm of his writing and power of his idealism.” Mirrors, Galeano’s most ambitious project since Memory of Fire, is an unofficial history of the world seen through history’s unseen, unheard, and forgotten. As Galeano notes: “Official history has it that Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, the two oceans at once. Were the people who lived there blind??” Recalling the lives of artists, writers, gods, and visionaries, from the Garden of Eden to twenty-first-century New York, of the black slaves who built the White House and the women erased by men’s fears, and told in hundreds of kaleidoscopic vignettes, Mirrors is a magic mosaic of our humanity.

In the early days of swing dancing, Frankie Manning stood out for his moves and his innovative routines; he created the "air step" in the Lindy hop, a dance that took the U.S. and then the world by storm. In this fascinating autobiography, choreographer and Tony Award winner (Black and Blue) Frankie Manning recalls how his first years of dancing as a teenager at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom led to his becoming chief choreographer and a lead dancer for "Whitey's Lindy Hoppers," a group that appeared on Broadway, in Hollywood musicals, and on stages around the globe. Manning brings the Swing Era vividly back to life with his recollections of crowded ballrooms and of Lindy hoppers trying to outdo each other in spectacular performances. His memories of the many headliners and film stars, as well as uncelebrated dancers with whom he shared the stage, create a unique portrait of an era in which African American performers enjoyed the spotlight, if not a star's prerogatives and salary. With collaborator Cynthia Millman, Manning traces the evolution of swing dancing from its early days in Harlem through the post-World War II period, until it was eclipsed by rock 'n' roll and then disco. When swing made a comeback, Manning's 30-year hiatus ended. He has been performing, choreographing, and teaching ever since.
