"Mark My Words" is a saga about Allan Christopher and his family. Allan is a self-made, African-American multimillionaire approaching sixty. He and his wife Maureen have been married for forty years, and they have eight children and seventeen grandchildren. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, starting out with nothing but family, very high intelligence, ambition, and drive. Graduating from high school at age sixteen, he worked his way through trade school to become an electrician. He was confronted with discrimination and prejudice, especially in the workplace. In his drive to succeed and refusal to be held down, he opened a fix-it shop in Chicago, and through hard work and determination turned it into a multi-million-dollar electronics corporation. He's "made his mark." For the last twenty-five years, his home has been a thirty-room estate in Evanston, Illinois. He's very articulate, and is among the Who's Who of Black America. His company is among those listed in the Fortune 500. He enjoys fine cars, like his collection of vintage automobiles. His children are educated and successful in their own right. He has contributed greatly to the community, considered to be one of its "movers and shakers." His business and social connections are numerous, and he faithfully attends church on Sundays. But has he made it? With the advent of his sixtieth birthday, his character, his past and his beliefs come into focus, honor and question as his story is told through the eyes of his family... including his four gay children... and with it his impact on their lives. The time is May 1988; the place, Chicago.

William Dean Howells (1837-1920) was an American realist author, literary critic, and playwright.

Howells is known to be the father of American realism, and a denouncer of the sentimental novel. He was the first American author to bring a realist aesthetic to the literature of the United States.

Philip Larkin met Monica Jones at University College Leicester in autumn 1946, when they were both twenty-four; he was the newly-appointed assistant librarian and she was an English lecturer. In 1950 Larkin moved to Belfast, and thence to Hull, while Monica remained in Leicester, becoming by turns his correspondent, lover and closest confidante, in a relationship which lasted over forty years until the poet's death in 1985. This remarkable unpublished correspondence only came to light after Monica Jones's death in 2001, and consists of nearly two thousand letters, postcards and telegrams, which chronicle - day by day, sometimes hour by hour - every aspect of Larkin's life and the convolutions of their relationship.

"This volume inaugurates a complete edition of The Correspondence of Charles Darwin. For the first time full authoritative texts of Darwin's letters are available, edited according to modern textual editorial principles and practice. The first volume of the edition contains the letters of the years 1821-1836. They begin with one written to Darwin at the age of twelve and continue through his school days at Shrewsbury, his two years as a medical student at Edinburgh, the undergraduate years at Cambridge, and his five years of exploration and learning during the voyage of the Beagle. These were Darwin's years of initiation and preparation for a life of science. In the earliest letters Darwin appears already keenly interested in natural history and an avid collector of minerals, plants, marine invertebrates, and insects - especially beetles. The letters of the succeeding years tell the story of the young Darwin's development up to his return to England when, at the age of twenty-seven, he was received as a colleague by Charles Lyell, Adam Sedgwick, and other leading scientists, who had already heard of his discoveries and observations during the Beagle voyage." --Publisher description.
