Overview

There and Now (Volume 1) weaves the untold tale of one boy by the name of Lil E who recounts all the middle school drama of his young life growing up in the heart of Philadelphia. His recollection of events in this Philadelphia story describes a riveting place for the most dangerous boys and Lil E remembers it all in one of the most gripping Philadelphia novels written ever. Starting from his first memories as a toddler, this young adult African American journey of a novel explores every restless turn in his life, from black fatherhood, school disasters during the early stages of Philly's desegregation program, crime in the neighborhood, early signs of the school to prison pipeline and discovering real friends. Unfortunately, this wimpy kid, no matter how tall he grew, was just always the one everyone teased to death. But bullying was far from the only childhood adversity, Lil E experienced; his youth fantasy was surrounded by the time of gangstas, posses, crack addiction, and political corruption; a time period when many lives in ruins fell through the cracks. Between the smiles of nostalgia to tears of a heart, There and Now is one of those must read books of all time. This Philadelphia series of one of many untold stories in America's inner cities will pull you along a journey full of social history and emotion.

Author Information

Eric Reese was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and attended the Community College in the city. He works as a community organizer and is an advocate for social justice, particularly for youth of color and was the recipient of the first Mayoral Scholarship of Philadelphia (1993) and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers Human Relations Award (1989). Eric has always been interested in writing and it was no surprise when he began producing books, many of them on African American culture and social issues, with a smattering of fiction, poetry and mystery thrown in. His first offering was There and Now (Volume 1), in November 2016, and since then his prolific nature has seen him now with more than 20 titles in print, with e-book and audio versions also available. When he has some time to himself, Eric loves to read and writes across numerous genres. He also enjoys traveling, playing video games and is a huge fan of many of the most popular sports. He once lived on a rooftop in Beirut until he could somewhere more suitable and wherever he has gone in the world his lively and energetic character has made him many friends. In the future, Eric would love it if one of his books was to be made into a movie. In the meantime, however, he is content to keep writing great books that people love reading. He now lives in California, where he loves the warmth of year-round sun. You can contact Eric Reese at feekness@gmail.com
