Author Alison Mills Newman reveals a rare vision of intersections between the lives of upper middle class African Americans, cutting edge multicultural bi-coastal artists, Pentecostal Christians, and revolutionary black political activists in her second novel, MAGGIE 3. Readers will witness "a rare thing," as Nobel prize winning author Toni Morrison said of Ms. Newman's first novel, Francisco, for here is a gifted storyteller who writes "with beauty, power and purity about a woman."

MAGGIE 3 chronicles the life of the main character Maggie, as she struggles to be sincere and true to the loves of her life and their quests to shape a life consistent with the highest spiritual and moral demands of their times. Moving between Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City and back to Los Angeles, the author--who has herself lived and worked within all of these worlds--is never less than searingly honest in expressing Maggie's passions, personal difficulties and even antagonisms with aspects of these life choices.

Through Maggie's eyes as a young artist who comes of age in the 1960s, the reader can experience the daily life consequences of her evolving commitments--to be the sweetheart and wife of a black Christian evangelical minister and mother to their two children. The novel's stunning portrayal of this woman's inner thoughts reveals great joys even while she fights to overcome the harsh realities of life. Similar in style to the author's debut novel, it is "a novel in the form of a diary (or possibly a diary published as a novel)," as noted in Publishers Weekly.

MAGGIE 3 is published by Ishmael Reed Publishing Company, a small independent press that for over thirty years has published distinguished writing luminaries. The company is proud to utilize the print-on-demand technology of Xlibris to continue to bring more writers to more readers.

About the Author:

Alison Mills Newman started acting professionally at the age of twelve, with guest starring roles on television in Mr. Novak and The John Forsythe Show. She was an original cast member of Julia, the historic television series starring Diahann Carroll, where she played the babysitter Carol Deering, and The Leslie Uggams Show, where she played Leslie's hip sister, Oletha, on a segment titled "Sugarhill." She studied four years at the American Theatre of Being, under the direction of Frank Silvera, and became a starlet in Hollywood, besides appearing on Broadway and Off-Broadway. At the age of twenty-two she performed as the opening act for Ornette Coleman at the legendary Five Spot, recorded with Taj Mahal, and appeared as a singer with Don Cherry, Herb Alpert, and with Joe Savinu and the Weather Report, with whom she was a guest artist at the Playboy Jazz Festival, singing her own compositions.

Alison Mills Newman is executive producer, writer, and co-star of the film, Virgin Again, a modern day version of the Gospel of Christ that was shot in Compton, South Central, and Perris, California, as written and directed by her late husband, Francisco Toscono Newman. A graduate of St. Stephens University, with a B.A. in Theology, she was the Pastor/Evangelist of Keep the Faith Ministries in the inner city of Los Angeles, California, where she resided for many years, and co-host of KTYM radio's "Seeing a Vision." The author of Francisco (a novel) and St. Augustine's Confessions, (a play premiered at the Perris Community Theatre), she is mother of five beautiful children, and currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
