Memories Vision a novel


Ken Coleman







The story of Queenie Jones, the most famous, notorious, and controversial black female entertainer of all time encompasses a century of her life, troubles, and lessons learned. Yet it twists as the story is told to a young, Jewish writer and he becomes infatuated, fascinated, and envious of her life���s choices. It���s a love story of a very odd couple.


What begins as her retrospective becomes his inspiration to question his choices, passions, and happiness, yet he doesn���t understand why. What begins as her story becomes his lost soul crossing all his barriers of race, religion, culture, and economics as we all struggle with image, sex, religion, and family, and he wants more. What begins as a project for him to make money becomes her acceptance of his short comings and validation of his passions, what every man yearns for.


Memories Vision is not a story only for people of color. It���s the journey of a man who was presented an opportunity to learn from an unlikely source, became engulfed in the over powering words and wisdom of the teacher, that he grew well beyond his world of understanding. In the tradition of Driving Miss Daisy and Tuesdays with Morrie, there���s Memories Vision.


Memories Vision can be found at the following booksellers:
