Books By Philip Effiong II
I have three published works--two novels and a textbook on African-American
drama.  Two of my fiction manuscripts, a memoir, and a work of social satire have all
been accepted for publication and will be released soon.  Recently I chose to revise
one of my self-published novels,
Give Me Words, I'll Fly,  and thus took it off the
shelf. It should be re-released in the near future.  The texts indicated here are in full
production and can be accessed, reviewed, and purchased in bookstores, in libraries,
and on the Web.  To locate any of these texts on the Web, simply click on its icon.
MONTY
Although Monty was the first
novel I published, it was actually
the second one I wrote.  The first
one,
Give Me Words, I'll Fly,
which was also published in
2001, is currently being
reworked and reconfigured.

detailed information about the

me, the author, and a free
preview of the work.
IN SEARCH OF A MODEL FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN DRAMA
Published by University Press of America
in 2000,
In Search Of A Model For
African-American Drama
was my first
book.  Focusing on three African-American
dramatists as representatives of the era of
the 1950s-70s, this text addresses the
socioartistic implications of the continued
search for "Black" theatrical standards.  In
the midst of so much dramatic ingenuity
and progress, and in a bid to break from
the constraints of "White" models, Black
dramatists, ironically, seem to encounter a
new challenge that emerges in the form of
self-restriction.
